It was almost always old women, often without veils, and a few effeminate men. Most men were too ashamed to make such a display.
I always wondered how such people could act this way, especially while making such ambitious spiritual claims for themselves. You’d think they’d show more respect for the Eucharistic Lord and their fellow Christians, who are trying to worship Him and learn His ways in the fastness of silence.
A lot has been written about the importance of silence and being disposed to receive God’s call.
Still, it’s nice to read others who have similar views of silence, particularly after Mass. But to be sure, this is by far a much bigger problem in the Novus Ordo where it seems reasonable to suppose that there is near constant change and novelty, except the host doesn’t change.
