I AM IN my fifties and I can recall many church practices that we learned to observe when we attend Mass.

In recent years, I have noticed the following:

• Before a Mass commences, there will be a lot of chattering. This disturbs the peace of those who want to reflect and have quiet moments with the Lord.

• People chatter whilst queuing up to receive Holy Communion, and some walk casually on the way back. I pray for a formal list of guidelines to be highlighted at the church notice board to refresh our memories.
