If the 'Modernists' Had Their Way: Mr. Bean and the Creed

Below is a spoof, not of the Apostles Creed, but of those who think they know better than the Church; the dissenters who say she is too old fashioned, not loving enough, not inclusive enough. After learning that the Diocese of Rochester recently installed a temporary labyrinth in their Cathedral, I wonder if Bishop Matthew Clark would perhaps prefer his female priestesses hand out leaflets with an altered Nicene Creed at the Holy Mass. This coupled with a 'super-soaker' filled with holy water should be a great inspiration to the average dissident. We wouldn't want anyone to be uncomfortable, would we? ;) Watch the video, laugh and then pray.

"For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander into myths." (2 Tim 4:3-4)

Kelly, did you know that built into the floor of the Chartres Cathedral there was (and is to this day) a prayer labyrinth used by the Roman Catholic people of that ancient city for contemplative prayer and meditation?

There is no evidence whatsoever that the early Christians walked labyrinths and no records of the construction of the labyrinth in Chartres Cathedral exist? It was buried under a bunch of chairs and they did not even know of its existence.

It is a fad, a crutch for people who feel they need to seek Christ and cannot find Him. Perhaps Fr. Hunt's lights of many colors could heal them of their delusions?

New Ageism is not Christianity. See the first three Commandments, then get back to me.
