A Must-See Video
The rather sacreligious clown mass was actually done at Trinity Church, Wall Street. Click on the link and go to the video cast about 40-45 minutes into it where during the fraction rite, the clown-celebrant breaks the bread, the cymbals clash, and the inmates greet the fraction with kazoos and noisemakers.I just watched it, and I've never seen anything quite like it in my life. And that's saying something.
I'm fairly confident that the LA Cathedral would not do this.
To witness the fraction, speed the video to about 48:30 and watch the magic. Comments are especially welcome on this one.
