I was recently at a secondary school Mass where, bishop Conry would be glad to hear, there was no Hail Mary at the end of the bidding prayers but instead there was one of those `liturgical` dances which we were told had something to do with Our Lady.
What particularly irritates me about all this is that we have to stop to watch a performance. ( Well I didn`t watch I kept my head in my hands.) However try suggestnig a polyphonic ordinary for the Mass and there will be a barrage of complaints about it being a performance which people can`t join in.
I know I should know this but is there anything anywhere that says that so-called `liturgical` dance is not allowed? I normally manage to walk out as it usually happens after Communion but I was rather stuck with it being halfway through.
