We’re all familiar with A & P catholics. Perhaps we should refer to this group as C & W catholics?

Sounds like people who’ve never or almost never been at any indoor worship service, be it Jewish, Protestant, Roman Catholic or whatever. That is more and more common today in the USA, sadly. They weren’t familiar with the expected decorum where people are always respectfully paying attention to whatever is going on in the ceremony. The fact that they respected the officiating person’s request showed that the problem was mostly one of unfamiliarity.

Weddings can run over for a variety of reasons. I remember one I played piano at where the power failed and the rain was drenching. People took shelter inside for over an hour till the rain let up and the power came back. Then the photographer finished up.

Hmm....Can’t say I know what an A&P Catholic is. I know C&E Catholics (Christmas & Easter)....

I think that there needs to be a fine line. Yes people shouldn’t be yakking during a wedding and they should respectful of others during services However, Catholics tend to be too dour about their worship. If you’ve ever been to an African American service, there is lots of happiness and rejoicing. And these people are respectful and wear their Sunday best.

It seems to me that Catholicism could use a little less dourness and guilt and a little more joy.
