Holy Mass Savoir-Vivre in India

 Chapel of Saint Anthony School, Madras, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India.

When you are in India and you go for a Sunday Mass, be aware of certain customs that are particular for this part of the World:
1.      Take off you shoes when you enter a church – remember that you enter to the Holy of Holies where God is present with His Body on Blood.
2.      Ladies should cover their hair. If you are wearing a Sari, which is most appropriate for Mass, cover your hair with it.
3.      If there are no pews in a church, just feel comfortable and sit on the floor.
4.      Ladies sit on the Gospels side of the Church, men on the Epistle side.
