Frequently Asked Questions
regarding
THE MOMENTS OF SILENCE
DURING HOLY MASS.


Q. 1. What are the moments during Holy Mass when the faithful should be silent for any period of time?

A. 1. According to the "General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM)", such being the Catholic Church's guideline on the celebration of the Holy Mass, it is recommended that silence be observed on five different occasions. Those moments are:

a. in the beginning, at the penitential rite,
b. at the start of certain prayers when the priest says, "Let us pray",
c. after each of the Scripture readings,
d. after the homily, and
e. after all have received Communion.

Thirty seconds of silence would be an appropriate time for each of the above.
