President Barack Obama and his family are making a rare Sunday trip to church.

Indeed. And speaking of this, never have I seen the Christmas crowd so unruly, inconsiderate, crass and ill-mannered. Last night a very well dressed older couple stomps into Mass about halfway through it. Apparently the geneman was unfamiliar with such things as kneelers, because he let out a low f-bomb after hooking his foot on the one in his pew. He spent the rest of the High Mass growling under his breath until I finally turned and asked him to please be quiet.

Never saw so many people use the general activity of rising for Communion as cover to duck out and go to the opera, dinner, a party, or home to watch TV. better for them not to receive, I suppose.

Haven't felt such animosity inside a church since they started coming to Mass in "Obama 2008" baseball caps a coupla years ago.

It was a glorious celebration, notwithstanding!

tih - I had a similar experience—I do every Easter and Christmas when the twice-a-year folks get there late, gripe loudly during the Mass, and leave early. This year at the Christmas vigil it was a young kid constantly sighing and asking why they just couldn’t watch Mass on TV.

I don’t begrudge ANYONE coming to Mass, but it definitely tests my patience. The best way to avoid that whole annoying business is to sit near as near the front of the Church as you can— where you can’t see or heat the rude gripers that usually sit near the back.
