two views on worship

My Roman Catholic boss found these videos on youtube, which I found both funny and revealing, so I thought I'd share them here with you. They contrast traditional worship styles with more modern and progressive forms in the RC Church, and their overall purpose is to express gratitude to Pope Benedict XVI for his defence of the dignity of the liturgy, especially in terms of stands he has taken in recent documents, such as his Apostolic Exhortation Sacramentum Caritatis, and his Motu Proprio, Summorum Pontificum.

In terms of the modern extremes displayed in the videos, I find them not so much fodder for anti-Romanism as much as examples of the sort of silliness to which all too many churches in the West, including Lutheran, have fallen. Enjoy:
