But I do find that, seeing the humorous side helps me get through the gut wrenchingly awful liturgical abuses that surround us.
I have always had a particular aversion to charismatics and can see no reason why one has to pray holding an invisible balloon or swaying and waving to the music.

The sub titles, quoting the words of the priest, tend to use the word "I" rather a lot but then it seems to me that charismatic worship is more "I" focused than "God" focused - or am I being unfair?
