This is kind of a rant . but I am curious to see if others have had experience or have insight on this “problem”, and if they have any solutions.
This has happened for as long as I can remember, but I noticed a particularly bad episode yesterday at Mass. During all of the prayers that the congregation says together (Gloria, Our Father, etc.), one man was praying VERY quickly, and quite loudly. It was QUITE distracting, and a teensy (OK, maybe a little more than that…) bit annoying. To our (my mom and I) astonishment, during the Agnus Dei, he proceeded do the same thing, only singing even MORE loudly… I’m sure all of you Mass attenders know exactly what I am talking about, but what can be done? I find it extremely rude, disruptive, distracting, and self-centered.
