I’m not sure if the above link is intact, but it’s from the Dynamic Catholic Institute and reads, in part: “…the music could be a complete train wreck, there could be kids running up and down the aisles screaming at the top of their lungs, throwing crayons and eating snacks…that’s OK–because the moment I receive the Eucharist is a pivotal moment…of transformation, a moment when I get to receive who and what I wish to become.”
I think that reminding us of the profundity on the teaching of the Eucharist is always excellent, but help me out here, please. The Church seems to take great pains to define what is and isn’t proper decorum for praying over and receiving the consecrated host in most church settings. But perhaps it’d be OK for there to be concession stands in the vestibule, selling those crayons and snacks? Or perhaps even in the nave? I can’t help but be confused sometimes, I’m not a frequent user of this forum. Thanks!
