Mass: The Video Game

You decide: hoax or not? Either way it’s a hoot.

If it were the 1962 Missal, the software would be much simpler: just turn it on and watch–the points would add up. The assembly need do nothing, and anything it did wouldn’t make a difference.

    Todd, you are clueless as to what “active participation” really means.

    I think Todd was (juts, mostly or at least in large part) having a little fun.

    It’s definitely a hoax, judging from the consensus on the gaming blogs. The thing that gave it away for me—besides the last-generation graphics—was “A Mighty Fortress” (the Reformation anthem) playing at the 0:25 mark.

    BTW, Sacrosanctum Concilium calls for BOTH internal and external active participation. How defensively humorless do you need to be to lash out at a crack at a video game? Sheesh.

    Christian. Cite it, please.

      19. With zeal and patience, pastors of souls must promote the liturgical instruction of the faithful, and also their active participation in the liturgy both internally and externally, taking into account their age and condition, their way of life, and standard of religious culture. By so doing, pastors will be fulfilling one of the chief duties of a faithful dispenser of the mysteries of God; and in this matter they must lead their flock not only in word but also by example.
