Dear Editor: When you go to Mass, you experience a great event of hearing the two readings, the Gospel and then the sermon. But right before the Mass ends, you get distracted by a lector reading from the weekly bulletin. Why was the bulletin printed anyhow? This is a real turnoff to my train of spiritual thought.
I wish someone would change this policy and maybe do the announcements before the Mass starts like they do in other places. I have experienced this a few times while visiting relatives that live in other dioceses.
