San Cristóbal Bishop Rodrigo Aguilar Martínez, southern Mexico, "plans" to incorporate pagan Mayan rites into the decadent Novus Ordo, he told EFE (March 1).
The general rule is that when such "plans" are made public, the abuses in question have long since been introduced. In fact, Martínez admitted that the paganisation is already being practised in Tzeltal and Tzotzil, two Mayan languages.
An official proposal will include pagan dance, music and the participation of women. It will be presented to the Mexican bishops in April and to the Vatican in May.
The Mayan rite will be an adaptation similar to the Congolese Rite, which incorporates elements of African culture. The faithful are expressing their views on such games by joining Protestant groups.
The only liturgical rule in the Vatican is: in the Novus Ordo, everything is allowed goes, in the Roman Rite everything is "forbidden."
