(Berlin) In the past years there have been celebrations of so-called "Faschings Liturgies" [Mardigras] in various areas in the German speaking areas.
The Society of St. Pius X in Germany is appealing "with insistence" to "all priests" on Sunday before Ash Wednesday to forbid "Faschings Liturgies". The critics from the Society are concerned about "blatant abuses" , which have "slithered" into parishes. "With the intention of offering church visitors diversions, many priests have begun to introduce Faschings elements into the Liturgy" and enter dressed as clowns at the altar. "In many places there are Mardigras bands in the churches, where people link arms and sway back and forth, where Mardi Gras songs are sung and the sermon is a fool's speech," so says the German District of the Society.

It would also be good to know the rest of the thought process. Stop this or what will happen and when and by whose authority. If this is done with force and regularity the cure can happen.
