I went to the second link first and for the life of me couldn’t figure out why such a beautiful ceremony was grossing you out! My duh. Reply Kevin June 19, 2007 - 4:14 pm I’ve personally never witnessed liturgical dance at Mass and I hope that I never will…. Reply joanne June 19, 2007 - 6:43 pm I have seen reverent liturgical dancers as angels in the children’s Nativity enactments, etc. Never this sort of stuff. Reply Ray from Manila June 19, 2007 - 8:42 pm This is all a paltry attempt to express unity with our Eastern Christian brethren by integrating the stereotyped and misunderstood Middle East art of belly dancing. Maybe the gospel is about the beheading of John the Baptist and the girls are doing a live re-enactment of Salome’s dance. The priest would justify it by saying “See, this is NOT what you ladies should be doing.” Guess who the Herod is. I would have stormed out of that church in a huff if it was the most charitable thing to do. Ugh!
