This will be just a short post.
As I mentioned before, usually during Saturdays, I spend my time at Church singing for our High School organization’s choir. Because we are at the choir loft, we can usually spot a lot of people from above. We notice things like the color that majority of the people are wearing, we notice quickly if there are only a few people in Church or not, things like that.
Awhile ago, I was the first to notice that there was a Church goer who had brought his PSP along to mass. The worst part, he was playing it for the most part of the mass. I don’t mean to judge people on how they act wherever they go, but I can’t help but feel irked that someone would do something like that and play the PSP while at Church. I could understand if the person was a child, yes, children need distractions especially when parents decide to bring them to Church. But teenagers to young adults? If people like those end up not listening to mass and simply play on their games while at Church, why bother coming at all.
Cellphones versus PSP. I’d say cellphones are the lesser evil of the two (unless the cellphone goes off – which is also irritating) since most of the time, they take only a small amount of concentration from the Church goer, as compared to someone who plays their games – rpg, action, adventure, combat, and the like- while at mass.
It’s annoying really. And as I continued to sing there, from my vantage point, I continued to see this guy on his psp.
No offense. It may not disturb anyone, especially if you turn off the volume and such, but it’s really rude to the priests and other Church goers who spot someone like that. If someone doesn’t want to attend mass, or will end up spending that one hour a week playing on their psp and such, please don’t bother going to mass at all. -_-
One of the worst things really is being there in body, but not in spirit.
