[quote:40pf1wmq]Is it ok to disagree? ” title=”Very Happy” /> Well, I don’t know that I really disagree, I haven’t really thought much that it could be disrupting.[/quote:40pf1wmq]
Of course it’s ok to disagree. ” title=”Wink” />
[quote:40pf1wmq]I kind of looked at clapping as appreciation for the entire mass and a way to express my happiness for the mass that had just been celebrated. Even after a performance from a theater or something, I clap because I appreciated it to some degree, so I have that same way of thinking about the mass–I appreciate that the mass was celebrated.[/quote:40pf1wmq]
But this is my point. It’s not like a theater performance. It’s not a performance at all.
[quote:40pf1wmq]Sometimes the priest will ask the congregation to thank the choir and parish bands by giving applause, then it is like we are praising them for their performance. [/quote:40pf1wmq]
Well, I think that is different, but I’m still not terribly excited about it.
Anyway, clearly I am outnumbered on this issue so it would be nice if other people who voted yes would kindly voice their opinion. ” title=”Very Happy” />
