“God, I’m a dancer! A dancer dances!”

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 03/27/15

Is he auditioning for “A Chorus Line”?

The YouTube description says:

“French Provincial Minister Michel Laloux expressed himself in dance during our morning Mass for the Annunciation.”

Because, of course, that’s more important than, like, listening to the wisdom of Pope Benedict XVI, who said:

It is totally absurd to try to make the liturgy “attractive” by introducing dancing pantomimes (wherever possible performed by professional dance troupes), which frequently (and rightly, from the professionals’ point of view) end with applause. Wherever applause breaks out in the liturgy because of some human achievement, it is a sure sign that the essence of liturgy has totally disappeared and been replaced by a kind of religious entertainment.

But let’s just enjoy the show, okay?
