An excerpt from a letter written by St. Padre Pio
on How to Conduct Yourself in Church

"Enter the church in silence and with great respect, considering yourself unworthy to appear before the Lord's Majesty. Among other pious considerations, remember that our soul is the temple of God and, as such, we must keep it pure and spotless befoe God and his angels.

"Then take Holy Water and make the Sign of the Cross carefully and slowly.

"As soon as you are before God in the Blessed Sacrament, devoutly genuflect. Once you have found your place, kneel down and render the tribute of your presence and devotion to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Confide all your needs to Him along with those of others. Speak to Him with filial abandonment, give free rein to your heart, and give Him complete freedom to work in you as He thinks best.

"If you pray with others, say the words of the prayer distinctly, observe the pauses well, and never hurry.

"In short, behave in such a way that all present are edified by it and, through you, are urged to glority and love the heavenly Father."

This is a reprint of a letter from St. Pio – Padre Pio – to one of his spiritual daughters, Annita Rodote, concerning how one should conduct oneself at Mass.
