On another thread the conversation came up about wearing headphones in adoration, and it is very interesting but quite a bit off topic from the OP’s question. So I’d like to bring back up the conversation here.
On my mp3 player I have the Scriptural Rosary, the Stations of the Cross, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy in song…it saves me having to carry around a stack of books to say these beautiful prayers and I almost always have them with me.
But I would really love to say the Stations of the Cross in front of the actual Stations inside the church. I feel listening to headphones in church is fairly taboo, and have never see anyone else do it, so I never have. But maybe that is because people think anyone listening to headphones is rocking out?
So I have two questions I want people to respond to.
What are your thoughts on listening to headphones in a church (or adoration chapel)?
and Does an mp3 player play a role in your religious life? How?
