We were vacationing, and visited a parish in another town. First the holy water was exchanged for hand sanitizer. Second, he completely skipped the Penitential rite, not even a Lord Have Mercy. Thirdly, he went straight to Prayers of the faithful after his homily that had nothing to do with the readings or Christmas. Next, he combined two different Eucharistic prayers, seemingly adlibbing, and finally, in the hope that the Mass was still valid, the bread was leavened. I asked the priest if he could explain how it’s allowed to skip the Creed, and he wanted to tell me a story. His response didn’t suffice. When I asked about the bread, he responded that it was indeed unleavened. (It looked like a wheat roll).
While this didn’t ruin our Christmas Day, it really disappointed our family, as we rarely get to celebrate Mass together, and Christmas Mass is literally at the top of the best things in life.
