Maybe it is the moon but today we had another disturbance at Mass today, a man who came in at the Communion Rite. He made some noise during Mass and presented himself for Holy Communion a little late, but received reasonably reverently. He then went to receive from chalice which had been consumed by the previous communicant, he cried out "I want the wine".
I am getting to the stage where I am beginning wonder whether it is wise to celebrate Mass publicly during the week. As someone said commenting on the previous post there is need for someone to keep order in the congregation obviously not beating people up but calming them down. How do other inner city parishes cope?
