The relics of St John Bosco are on tour through the UK. They were at the Liverpool Metropolitan cathedral today. I wasn't there but a friend who took his family sent me a text or two afterwards describing some of what they had experienced. At the Offertory - about 42 minutes into the video - they were treated to dancing girls up and down the aisle and gyrating on the sanctuary floor in front of the altar. I make no comment on it, except to say it's probably a good thing I didn't go. I thought this sort of episode was now a thing of the past, relegated to the 1970's but you can make your own minds up. I beg you to be charitable if you decide to comment. I don't know what the rest of the pilgrimage of his relics has been like and I don't know much in detail about the Saint - although I believe that he had a particular devotion to the Pope and loyalty to his teachings - to the extent of being described as "ultra-montane" in his views by some authors.
Apologies for not being able to highlight the particularly relevant part of the video but it proved beyond my technical skill.
The video is courtesy of http://www.ustream.tv/channel/salesianlinkApologies also for the advert at the start which you will have to endure & others that pop up during the video that might be considered unsuitable during the viewing of Mass - a reminder that using secular forums can lead to incongruous juxtapositions.
St John Bosco - Pray for us.
