Hmmm... that might be a start

"A prelate in Bombay archdiocese has asked priests to shorten their preaching during the liturgy in an effort to draw more people to the Church... in a memo that contained a host of instructions for priests on how to enrich the service to attract people.

The prelate “strongly discouraged” priests from speaking for more than 20 minutes during the Mass. “The homily is an important part of the liturgy and is always given by an ordained minister. It should be well-prepared and to the point,” he added....

The instructions also discourage the use of PowerPoint presentations and skits to liven up the homily."

No mention of puppets, I notice...
