During Mass…

Posted: June 16, 2019 by CatholicJules in Life's Journeys

Today I told a Caucasian guy scrolling through Facebook on his mobile during mass, “hey mate no mobiles in church.” He tailed me and insisted I answer his question after repeating it a few times. “Are you a Bishop?” I began with God bless you followed by we are on sacred ground. He went on to say that he was checking messages as he his wife has a friend who has cancer and was checking up on the friend. I informed him be could do so outside. He grunted and went back to his seat. Both he and his wife continued to go through the mobile and talked throughout the homily.

I realised then since both were wearing shorts that it was no point engaging them further. They were probably there out of a distant sense of obligation. And so will continue to pray they encounter Christ in a deep meaningful way.

As to the question am I a Bishop? I would have liked to respond this way… “No brother I am not a Bishop, but I know better then to disrespect my Lord Jesus Christ in the tabernacle, in the Word, in His Church, in the Priest that stands before us in persona Christi and at Holy Eucharist.” Amen
