Directions to Church

How much talking is acceptable while waiting for Mass to begin? The chatter gets noisier as more people arrive, and then everyone starts talking louder just to be heard.
Before Mass, “it is a praiseworthy practice for silence to be observed in the church, in the sacristy, in the vesting room, and in adjacent areas, so that all may dispose them selves to carry out the sacred celebration in a devout and fitting manner” (General Instruction of The Roman Missal, 45). For the liturgy to produce its full effects, “it is necessary that the faithful come to it with proper dispositions, that their minds...be attuned to their voices, and that they cooperate with the divine grace lest they receive it in vain” (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy [Sacrosanctum concilium], 11). In this sense, we are silent together, for the Mass is not a private function but a celebration of the Church as the “sacrament of unity,” a holy people united (SC 26).
Thus, from the point of entry in a church to the time of the gathering song which is intended to foster unity (GIRM47), how does your faith community gather for Mass? Some churches with self -contained vestibules are ideal for offering welcome to newcomers and for exchanging greetings. Other sacred spaces are less conductive for separating this informal ritual from a place of quietude. Nevertheless, every faith community, with varying success, created an atmosphere before Mass where individuals come tog ether as a worshiping body, and at the same time, where people may dispose themselves in a devout manner.

A Word from Pope Francis
When we go to Mass, perhaps we arrive five minutes early and begin to chat with the person next to us. But this is not the moment for small talk...It is the moment for recollection within the heart, to prepare our selves for the encounter with Jesus. 
Silence is so important! —General audience, November 15, 2017

Prayer for Vocations

 

LORD JESUS,
We ask you to send more servants to your people. Choose from our parishes, from our homes, from our schools and colleges, an abundant harvest of apostles for your Kingdom: priests, sisters, brothers, deacons and lay ministers.
We pray that those you call may never lose awareness of the dignity and need of their vocation.
O Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church, teach to all those the Master calls to say a joyful "yes" as you did at the Annunciation.

Amen.
