TIVO's just a program that records selected shows; you can fast forward, rewind, etc. You know, Fr. Serge, I appreciate ascetism in a priest and all, but TIVO's been around for a while now!
Unfortunately, I think I heard somewhere that TIVO'ed programs can't be recorded onto DVDs, but then again I don't see why they couldn't. I can attempt to try, and let you know if it works, but I must warn you: I am an embarrassment to my generation as far as technological prowess is concerned. It's not my forte', and I'm bound to mess it up, but we'll see.
I think that overall the service was very well done. Aside from the abbreviations and complete deletions that some people mention above, I thought the singing was quite well done, and I thought the deacon and the main celebrant-hierarch did great jobs.
I do have a couple questions, however.
Why did female ushers wear albs, albs that looked a lot like the cheap chasubles the Latin hierarchs were wearing? It just smells like an "agenda" to me, but maybe I'm just a naturally suspicious person.
Another thing: I have never understood why many Eastern Catholic bishops' mitres are of a certain, less ornamental and "plasticky-looking" variety, as opposed to most Orthodox bishops' mitres. Yesterday in the liturgy most of the EC bishops wore that type of mitre, although the main celebrant had a wonderful mitre on that didn't appear in this style. Just wondering what causes the difference.
Anyway, I thought that they did as good a job as could reasonably be expected in such a terrible venue, but the locationm, setup, and decoration were par for the course since our dear old friend the ex-Papal MC Piero Marini is now, mercifully, in charge of the international Eucharistic congresses. Mercifully for papal liturgies, anyway.
