Might you please care to elaborate?
lol, not really. I went home for Easter to my local Presbyterian Catholic upper-middle-class suburban parish for the Easter morning Mass and it was just the usual bland, though technically "by the books," four-hymn sandwich.But without even any of the low-brow tackiness (which at least has a sort of campy charm) that you can expect from the blue-collar urban Novus Ordo parishes around here (in Chicago). This, on the other hand, just felt like some sort of city council meeting that they'd play on local-access cable...Though, I will say, the sermon was excellent. We have a priest in residence whom I've always liked and who has clearly studied oratory according to some Method, taking different "stances" and hand-gestures, etc, in a very deliberate manner.Now, he'd never get people hooting and hollering like the "black preaching" or "Hitler speech-making" I've said I'd like to see sometimes...but it's powerful and edifying nonetheless.Refreshing especially given that I probably heard the worst most bumblingly incoherent sermon ever the night before (though extremely sincere and well-intended, which made it all the more squirmy and awkward to listen to...)
