I Suggest the Christian Thing Would be to Abstain from Mimes

A friend sends this email:
This is the best Zenit Headline ever...

"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. ..."

"The liturgy is simply not the appropriate situation for such demonstrations even though they are praiseworthy and effective catechetical tools in other circumstances."
Err... I'm not sure mimes are ever effective catechetical tools, though maybe things are different in France.
This is clearly not what St. Francis meant when he said to only use words if necessary.

On the other hand, maybe this could be a clever way to sneak the Silent Canon into the new liturgy.
