Adventures in Bad Liturgy

This week's winner in the Adventures in Bad Liturgy is His Eminence, Christopher Cardinal Schoenborn, the Archbishop of Vienna. In this Mass for Youth, the Cardinal demonstrates such incredibly bad taste that it should remove all doubts as to why Anglo-Catholics value their liturgy.

Also, note the use of leavened bread in this liturgy. Only unleavened bread is valid matter for the Holy Eucharist in the Western Church. So here we have a Cardinal of the Church not only allowing a liturgical shipwreck, but also attempting to celebrate a Mass with invalid matter.

Here's the link to this liturgical travesty:
