[quote:1uth6y7y]I think you’ve found one of my pet peeves without even looking for it!

All the noise after Mass is over is horrendous. [/quote:1uth6y7y]

Finally, some support around here! <img decoding=” title=”Very Happy” />

[quote:1uth6y7y]Technically for about fifteen minutes after receiving Communion you are in Communion with God…. This is theologically supported by all Church teachings….[/quote:1uth6y7y]

Where did you hear/see/read about this 15 minutes? I thought we were infinitely connected to God and separated only by sin. <img decoding=” title=”Confused” />

Anyway, I mostly agree with GailMac2 except, I am not sure we need to go back to the rigidity of pre-Vatican II. I think it is great that people at least feel comfortable talking in church, but if it is disrespectful then it should not be done.

It is nice when the priest prompts an acknowledgement of the choir or musicians (in some parishes that is all the thanks they ever get—-and from what I know of the parishes I have been in

it requires alot of practice time)

[quote:1uth6y7y]Now that I think of it—another way to offer something is by mentioning them in the intentions or prayer of thanksgiving after communion. [/quote:1uth6y7y]

Pam, I think this is a great idea. <img decoding=” title=”Very Happy” />
