Can a priest interrupt Mass because of noise?


QUESTION: Can a priest during Mass interrupt the reading of the Gospel every time someone makes a noise (for example, someone’s phone rings or children scream)? Isn’t this a lack of mercy and tolerance?

ANSWER: most likely, the priest you are referring to, makes sure that the Word of God reaches everyone, which can be hindered by extraneous noise.
