I attended my first Neo-Cat Mass this evening after being invited by a friend.
I was kind of shocked by what happenned there. Is there anything against the following things happenning in a Neo-Cat Mass:
After entering the Priest sat at the back for a moment whilst a member of the laity introduced the Mass before he came in and said “Name of the Father…”
The Homily was shared between the Priest and the Laity. The laity doing the first part and making their own contributions.
Missing out most of the Eucharistic Prayer. Going from “Holy, Holy” to “This is my body…”
No kneeling during the consecration (or at anytime)
Everyone recieving the Eucharist and then everyone (including the Priest) consumes it at the same time
Dancing around the Altar at the end
I’m from the Uk and I know at a “normal” Mass, this is wrong, but seeing as this is a slightly different Mass, are these things ok if (I don’t know if they did) get permission from the Bishop?
Needless to say, I’m not going again!!
