Good thing I'm not catholic! Yipes!!!


In what will be welcomed by anyone who has found themselves dozing off in church, the Secretary for the Synod of Bishops, Archbishop Nikola Eterovic, said that homilies should be kept short, pithy and topical.
The Catholic Church is only too aware that in an age of constant distraction provided by mobile phones, television and 24-hour internet access, their audiences sometimes struggle to maintain attention – or even stay awake.
"The homily in general should not go over eight minutes – the average amount of time for a listener to concentrate," the Croatian-born archbishop said.
