This Advent, our parish Priest took to bringing a (live!!) chicken into
the Church every week - he called it the 'Christmas Chicken' and said
that it represented 'the spirit of Christmas' (whatever that has to do
with saying Mass I don't know!!). He insisted that each week in Advent
during intercessions one prayer was directed NOT TO GOD but to the
'Christmas Chicken', which was allowed to wander freely around the altar
during Mass, that we all feel 'wonderfully Christmassy happy' during
Advent. I tried to address the matter with the Priest directly, but he
simply implied I was being a spoilsport. Was I right to think that there
was something amiss here? What further action should I take, if any?
I should say that I am new at my Parish, and don't necessarily feel terribly comfortable confronting the Priest directly.
Yours in Christ.

I think its time to find another Church that actually worships God ... and fast.

I just can't believe this! I mean this is what God Gave us Youtube for if the priest doesn't listen and the Bishop doesn't disapline this priest well Youtube it!!
this isn't too far from reality sometimes.
