The Ironic Catholic , Un-muted mumblings, Christus Vincit, Happy Catholic, and the Curt Jester have compiled a list for RCIA candidates of Catholic Mass etiquette. Feel free to leave your favorite suggestions. I did. This is getting to be a Meme of pet peeves in Church!
22. To our elderly congregants who take up guard posts at either ends of the back pew: please have mercy on us parents of obnoxious toddlers! We have no crying room in our church, and the vestibule is cold and seatless, therefore please allow us the back pew for a few minutes of peace before we need a quick getaway!
23. To the young lector with the gorgeous body, who knows it. God has truly blessed you, but for the sake of the men in the church, DRESS MODESTLY so Christ can remain the center of the Mass, not your legs!
Add your own in the comments, I'll probably add more as I think of them!
These are getting to be a sort of meme of Americas Funniest Church Incidents!
Here's a good one for seniors from Plantlady. a commenter on the Curt Jester:
If you ride your electrified scooter up the aisle to receive Holy Communion, remember to brake BEFORE you reach the priest. (A lady actually drove into Father, who lost his footing and quickly handed me the chalice so he wouldn't drop it!)
