During our “Praise and Worship” mass we do hand signals to songs, clap to the music, come short of speaking in tongues <img decoding=” title=”Wink” /> :shock: While I understand that this mass is our “Youth Mass” and I do enjoy the more upbeat music I think that there is a time and place for this and during mass is not the time nor the place.

I stopped going to this mass when the guitar player of the band during mass started playing his guitar, very quietly during the Liturgy of the Eucharist. I already have to contend with the many distractions at mass this is just too much! Mass is not a place to entertain – it is a time to worship!
