Tuesday, May 20, 2003 Progressive feng shui: That's the term artfully coined by Dale Price to describe the layout of the worship space in this pic of a home mass led by a self-described rent-a-priest. Indeed, the setting is a living-room version not only of the Spirit of Vatican II liturgy but of the reordered sanctuary in many a suburban parish, with the Coffee Table of Celebration placed in front of the old fixed Standup Piano. A traditionalist rent-a-priest would celebrate facing the High Piano.
Dale Price, for his part, remains immune to the allure of do-it-yourself liturgies led by former priests at Elks lodges.
