I was raised to be catholic which as you may know is a strict, and structured type of mass. Their practices in mass is exactly the same way each Sunday you attend, the only thing that usually differs is the subject of which the mass has been planned around.

I think that silence in church is important because it gives you time to reflect towards God and think about all your sins. I feel that having silence also helps keep you sane in a way because you let your mind rest and have ease which gives the brain the time it needs to
