I Suggest the Christian Thing Would be to Abstain from Mimes
This is the best Zenit Headline ever...This is clearly not what St. Francis meant when he said to only use words if necessary.
"Holy Water, Abstinence and Mimes.""Finally, several readers asked if it was permitted to incorporate mimes and dramas during the reading of the Passion and other Holy Week readings. ..."Err... I'm not sure mimes are ever effective catechetical tools, though maybe things are different in France.
"The liturgy is simply not the appropriate situation for such demonstrations even though they are praiseworthy and effective catechetical tools in other circumstances."
On the other hand, maybe this could be a clever way to sneak the Silent Canon into the new liturgy.
