What I wish I had the courage to say in person

A note to the elderly who like quiet at Mass to hear themselves pray (who doesn't?) PLEASE leave the crying room to parents with noisy children! Or if there is no crying room, leave us the last pew, so we can make a quick getaway to the vestibule.
Don't sit there and scowl at us if junior gets restless, we're doing our best to hide in the back. Take the front pews we dream about occupying someday. . .in about 10 years.
For a funny take on Catholic Mass etiquette, see my post on Causa Nostrae Laetitiae.

I am late in seeing this one Leticia, but HOW TRUE!

: )

We do not have this problem in our current parish, but in our last one, there were always childless people in the cry room staring down the toddlers (not only mine, but others) as if we had just entered their personal chapel! LOL!
