Ryan’s post reminded me of a Bad Thing I went through yesterday morning. This past weekend was the Annual Catholic Appeal, wherein we ask Catholics to support the operations of the diocese through contributions. I was the person at my parish responsible for leading people through the process of filling out their pledge cards during Mass.
Attending the 9:30 Mass (the family Mass), I was reminded why I don’t usually attend the 9:30 Mass. Speaking directly into the microphone, I still couldn’t hear myself at some points of the Mass due to noise of children, especially one baby who reminded me of nothing as much as Damien from “The Omen“.
I’m convinced that if I am unfortunate enough to experience Hell, it will remind of the 9:30 Mass.
And when I’m Absolute Dictator, parents who make no effort to get a screaming child out of Mass until they’re calm will be denied Communion.
