Missing only a picture of a ringing cellphone!
Every summer we need more of these here in the U.S.A.
That sign is so needed at the Sacre Coeur in Paris. When we visited last year on a summer Sunday, the beauty and sacredness of the site was invisible in the crowd of beach-dressed, snogging couples who thronged the steps and the plaza atop Montmartre, and where one would expect holy water stoups there were large wire trash receptacles at the entrance doors, overflowing with ice cream cups and other even less edifying trash. I suppose it was no different in the days of the medieval pilgrimages, but siiiiigh.
Amen. I agree on the cell phones and also texting and every other form of electroic distraction. Especially now that we are also getting the corrected liturgy and a more sacred music.
That is hysterical!
