LITURGICAL ABERRATIONS IN FR. FRANKLIN D’SOUZA’S MASSES
The following three photographs were taken during Holy Mass at St. Joseph’s School, Bhopal, April 26, 2012:

“Praise and Worship”, speaking or praying in tongues, clapping of hands to music, delivering healing testimonies, extending one’s hands in the Orans position during the recitation of the Lord’s Prayer, etc. are liturgical abuses of the rubrics of the Mass. They belong strictly to the realm of the charismatic prayer meeting. Most, if not all, charismatic priest-preachers, instead of being an example of fidelity to the rubrics, are innovative proponents of these aberrations.
Since there are several files in the “Liturgical abuses” section of my web site dealing with these issues, I will not say anything more here. Please look them up.

FR. FRANKLIN DOES NOT WEAR THE ALB TO CELEBRATE HOLY MASS. EVER.
Wearing an alb is mandatory for a priest who celebrates the Sacrifice of the Mass. See CCBI (Conference of Catholic Bishops of India) Directives for the Celebration of the Liturgy, 2016, section V “Liturgical Vesture”, Redemptionis Sacramentum #123, 126.
If a priest does not obey the rules and guidelines of the Church, what example does he set?

In all of the several thousand photographs posted by Fr. D’Souza (2011 to 2019) on his blog, I didn’t spot the alb — either on him (selected images further below) or his concelebrants.
However, I spotted the surplice on a couple of occasions (not at Mass), as in these photographs:
