A Christmas Carol service in Sri Lanka raised eyebrows when it inserted the lyrics to Tupac’s Hail Mary instead of the ancient prayer beloved of Christians around the world into the service bulletin.
A Christmas carol service in Sri Lanka surprised churchgoers by mistakenly supplying the lyrics to the Tupac Shakur song, Hail Mary, instead of those of the traditional Christian prayer.
Pictures of the programme from Joy to the World 2016, one of Sri Lanka’s largest carol services, were shared widely across social media over the Christmas weekend. …
Both renditions ask Mary, venerated as the mother of Jesus, to intercede on behalf of sinners, though Tupac’s version is more exhaustive in detailing the exact sins in question, including murder and drug-dealing.
According to the Guardian, festival organizers did not explain nor acknowledge the apparent error.
