It's a good idea.
Shhh: Pope urges silence to communicate better
Our culture knows nothing of silence. A two-minute moment of silence during Mass gets people shuffling their feet, rattling hymnal pages, coughing and getting up to go to the vestibule area. They're uncomfortable! Even worse are the young people who are already distracted by not being able to have their ear buds plugged into their ears for this whole hour and not being ablet to text or talk on their phones. I mean, what do people expect? It's inhuman!
Actually, it's wonderful.
