Preparing for Mass

When you enter the Church for Holy Mass, please sign yourself with holy water, bend your knee to the floor before you enter the bench, and then pray quietly to get yourself in the proper frame of mind to worship the Lord.

One thing you must also do is SILENCE YOUR ELECTRONIC DEVICES not only to prevent calls, but also to avoid checking on emails. We have seen people using their phones before Mass, when they should be preparing to listen to the words of the Lord and to receive Him in Holy Communion. Talk to God at that time, not your friends.
