Oktoberfest Mass! First Communion in Beer Tent

Edit: really nice kids, but it's a terrible shame they have no understanding of what's going on in the Mass, and no wonder.  What a horrible initiation into deeper Christian life.

Germany.  Last Thursday a Domincan, Father Paul Schäfersküpper, held a First Communion Mass in a beer tent in the Munich festival hall Bayernland.  This was according to the website '' with photos.  Father Schäfersküpper is the director of the department of Tourism, Healing and Pastoral Care for the Archdiocese of Munich-Freising.  The First Communion involved two sons of carnival employees.  They consumed the Blood of Christ grimmaced -- which is clearly visible in photographs -- ostentatiously about the taste with their lips.  With that they gave the impression that they did not understand what was happening in the photos.

The Munich Beer Festival, also known as Oktoberfest, or Wies’n by the locals, is a public beer festival held once a year in Munich, Germany. The festival lasts for 16 days and runs from the middle of September to the first Sunday in October. Every year around 6 million people attend, consuming 4 million litres of beer, half a million roast chickens and 200,000 pairs of pork sausages, making the Oktoberfest one of the biggest parties in the world!
