The mass is destined to explore the lyrics and the art of the singer, who ‘opens a window to the lives of marginalized and forgotten people, especially black women’.
The Vine will host the Mass at Grace Cathedral. The Vine SF is Grace Cathedral’s new vision of the Christian spiritual community, which combines progressive worship, contemporary values and new connections, according to Facebook.
‘We are not worshiping Beyoncé. Some media have reported this as a joke, and many have taken it seriously, ‘Vine, the headquarters of the mass, published on Facebook. ‘We adore God in grace, and nothing else. As with ‘Bluegrass Mass’ and ‘Sister Act Mass’, * the medium is not the message. * The medium is the powerful songs of Beyoncé, who give voice to the black female experience, exploring themes of spirituality, sexuality and agency.
The Mass will consist of singing Beyoncé songs.
Vine’s publication goes on to say that the church has not done the best job of claiming that black women are made in the image of God.
‘Our worship is related to this question of justice because that is what worship does: the closer we get to God, the more conscious we feel of the need to heal the broken places in our relationships with each other and with God,’ says Vine. .
The Mass will be held on April 25.
It has been already created “The National Church of Bey“, an organization that recently formed the new religion called Beyism, based in Atlanta, Georgia. Although Beyoncé herself is not believed to be a part of it, she is the foundation of it and has so far not made a statement denouncing it.
The church’s founder, Pauline John Andrews, recently stated, “We are very disappointed in the failure of the public to recognize the existence of a divine Deity walking among them. Deity’s often walk the Earth in their flesh form. Beyoncé will transcend back to the spirit once her work here on Mother Earth has been completed.” The members believe that Beyonce “sits among the throne of Gods”
