I would love to know where this happened. That way, I can avoid ever being there.

St. Glad, the patron saint of trash bags.

Close, Fr. Goomba. This is Glad the Impaler.

Actually, this could be one of those new-fangled confessionals.

The most important thing is the recycling... (???) Stop the Giants!

Really, really awful. Worse than the Calvinist paper mache' puppets of doom--its actually scary.

Looks like a dementor from Harry Potter. And just like those, this one will feed off human happiness and cause depression and despair to anyone nearby.

It's at St. Joan of Arc in Minneapolis. Been there. It's bad news.

I went to the web site and, with my jaw dropping ever lower, read the commentary and looked at the pictures. Have these people no bishop to explain to them the difference between the Sacred Triduum and Halloween?

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

It appears to be consuming the unfortunate congregation.

Blue Man Group for Christians?

Fr. Smurf?

Inspired by the film as he was, Avatar outreach was not as effective as the youth director had hoped.

Glad, the Impaler, my laugh for the day. Very good. DEATH is one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalpyse. What happened to WAR, FAMINE and PLAGUE, and why are these individuals not being informed of ALL? except that maybe the inventor did not realize his fear of death is his driving force. Needs to get back to the LOVE of GOD.

That looks suspiciously like one of the monsters from an urban fantasy book I've been reading. It is not supposed to be a documentary!

G-d must wonder if these people ever read His handbook (aka the Scriptures).

Is there any connection to the "Klingon Monstrance" from June 2, 2011 ???

My daughter said, "Maybe they are trying to teach the people the virtue of fear of God. Wrong concept though."

While you are all sneering and wondering what the point is, think about this. I have a friend who goes to Joan of Arc because his teenager likes the liturgies there. My friend prefers a more traditional style, but also appreciates having a place where his child actually wants to go to Mass. Truth be told, I hate the puppets too. But aren't they a small price to pay for the greater good?

Actually, I think the makers are being multi-cultural and pagan affirming.

Looks like one of the giant heads from Easter Island come to teach us about being green. Or is it blue?

priest's wife said...

and we are asking Orthodox and Anglicans to be in unity with the catholic Church? And this is allowed??????

This has no place in the liturgy or in church. The "for the kids" excuse is absurd. Why not just have a ball game inside after getting rid of the pews?

Caedmon said...

That's the scariest looking thing I've seen since the critters in the Vin Diesel movie "Pitch Black."

If this is going on in Minnesota, where are the hunters in that state?
