Liturgical Dance at Liverpool Cathedral to welcome St John Bosco.

Well, it seems that liturgical dance is still alive and kicking. This disturbing clip shows a dance at the offertory and was apparently the Mass celebrated by Bishop Tom Williams, Auxiliary of Liverpool, at 3:00 PM on January 6, 2013 and not 2012 as stated on the video to welcome the relics of St. John Bosco to the Metropolitan Cathedral. I don't usually like to criticize our bishops, but this really seems to me a disgcraceful example of liturgical abuse. One of the bishop's duties is to make sure that this sort of thing does not happen, not preside over it! It is precisely this sort of abuse that gives many people the impression that some sort of rupture did indeed occur after Vatican II.
