Father Markus Krauth of the notorious parish Maria Geburt in Aschaffenburg, Germany, came up with an “Earth Altar Table” on October 3.
The comedy started with a big pile of earth in the nave. Then, people shovelled earth into green buckets until a table hidden inside the pile became visible.
Finally a cloth was put on the table and Krauth presided the Eucharist. For October 10, the parish plans a liturgy entitled “The De-Clericalisation of the People of God.”
A better title would have been ‘The Decatholiciization of the People of God”
