I have NEVER had a priest react....even with my three year old running up the aisle during Mass to the rail and around in front of it before we could catch him...
If a priest reacts to these things with any more than a smile...to me....he's gonna pay the piper.
Children should at all times be considered a blessing, and their antics should be taken for what they are, nothing....and if a parishioner wants to take it up with me...woe to him...pretty simple.
Scipio, as a father of a lively 2-year old girl, I thank you for this, and heartily second every word of it.
I too have had problems with baby-haters at my own diocesan TLM. Not from the Priests, mind you, but from certain candyland trads who insist on sitting in the back of the church with the young families, when there is plenty of room up front for them if they are truly so disturbed by others. We've been on the receiving end of many raised eyebrows, eyerolls, sneers, and under-the-breath comments ourselves.
CC, I'm so sorry that this happened to you. While I have had my share of it, I've never encountered something THAT awful. You're all in my prayers, as is your priest. It sounds like he needs them more than anyone.
