A friend of mine writes in her journal during mass. She always uses a pen and a spiral journal. Mass and adoration always stirs her soul in amazing ways. God seems to communicate with her in unique ways and the poetry she writes during these times is just amazing. She usually stops writing just after the homily. I don’t personally have a problem with it since it’s where she communicates with God. I’m wondering is it alright that she writes?
I know she has been kicked out of one church because the priest doesn’t like her writing. Apparently people have complained about it, so the priest’s way of handling it was telling her to either refrain from writing or don’t attend mass. Those who know her, understand writing is part of her spirit and don’t question it. I don’t personally see how it could be a problem if someone is writing in a journal (pen and paper.) Any type of electronic device ex: ipad, iphone, tablet, I could see and so does she hence the pen and paper. She also likes to take notes of the pastor’s homily. Her present pastor understands her writing and her unique connection with God. What are your thoughts on this matter?
