With apologies to Jeffrey Tucker, how can the liturgy go out to the lost and bring them back? Did Whoopee Goldberg in 1991's Sister Act give us the way? Is it a precursor to Pope Francis taking risks to go out and bring them back.
Remember Sister Act was about a faux nun who saw a declining Catholic Church in a particular neighborhood which needed to be revitalized and this non-religious character found the way to do it through music. Was Sister Act onto something? Is this part of the new evangelization, leaving the one person in the traditional pew and seeking the 99 lost? Just wondering!
Watch the miracle of how a new beat in Catholic music brings the lost back to Church and packs it!
Even the Bishop of Rome is impressed:
Of course the traditional habits help too! Could you imagine this movie with nuns in frumpy street dress and even more frumpy chopped off hair? It just wouldn't work in this precursor of the new evangelization!
