This guy, 67, who goes to noon mass Monday through Saturday -
( his home church is somewhere else )
said a swear word - in describing a region of town populace - ( the A word swear, pluralized)
In the pew - ten minutes before the rosary -
And he leads - one of the decades !
Today he did “ the finding of Jesus in the Temple “
But I’m kicking myself, still, days later,
Should I have shushed him - (as he spoke to a 80 year older )
This guy has a serious problem chatting before mass -
Before rosary, immediately after rosary, a tough guy type, brash, etc.
I know nothing can be done with the top chatter box -
But when he swore - in the sacred walls of a church -
I got angry inwardly -
I’m still angry - but now at myself - for not shushing him.
Anyone ever deal with such a thing ?
