Christians Told To ‘Pray In Silence… Don’t Disturb The Migrants’

Parishioners visiting a church in Italy were told they must “pray in silence” so as not to disturb African migrants being housed there.

  • It is said in the Gospels that one should pray sincerely in the quiet and solitude of one’s room.

    In this case, I shall pray in an annoying loud volume.

    Tolerant to the point of extinction.

      Tolerance and misguided compassion are indication of a dying society, country and culture.

    Caritas and their fellow virtue signaling poseurs should be restricted to only feeding pigeons.

  • Petrilia

    That pissed me off big time.

    Presuming many if not all of the African migrants staying in the church are Muslims, does the church also ask them to pray in silence so as not to disturb the Christian visitors?

    As for the rosary, my own Catholic education was very post-Vatican II so not much emphasis on the rosary, but traditionally I think it was always supposed to be spoken aloud, but softly, in a whisper or mumble. How can they imagine that would “disturb” the migrants? The speaking of the prayer is part of the ritual. I do wish some fiesty Italian grandma eventually tells them where to cram it when they have the audacity to ask her to pray silently in a church.

    At least this action confirms that those in power now how islam produces many followers predisposed to riots, violence and jihad slaughters when offended.

    How odd though , the Liberal leftist keep telling us that the Migrants aren’t muslims and yet they keep pulling a stunt like this to accommodate migrants by respecting their faith .

    Go for the High mass smells and bells. I also want a carillon of bells before and after the mass.
    And singing lots of singing with a beautiful organ accompaniment.

    Bach’s Passion of St John?

        Well Father z is a very vocal supporter of the extraordinarty form. I myself support the option even if I’m ambivalent about it

        I don’t think like him that it’t bring about the Great Revival but fuly support parishioners’ desire for the extraordinary form and would never stand in the way if tjere was a request for it in my parish
