Acting Out the Gospels with Mimes, Puppets, & Clowns
I have often referred to mimes, puppets, and clowns as a trifecta of evil. Integrating things inside a Catholic Mass is just horrific on so many levels. Maybe it is a way for those attending Mass to glimpse what Hell would look like. The images of a clown face on a crucified Jesus or the Apostles is so disturbing. This is the stuff of nightmares. I am just Catholic enough to be weirded out about this book.
As a librarian, I realize that my opinion is just my opinion. If this was truly something that my community wanted, I would do my best to accommodate them. This book is nearly 40 years old and it looks it. If you want to break out the clown stuff during Easter Mass, than rock on with your bad self. I will cheerfully help you find the right book (if such a thing exists) but I will not be in attendance.
