Clapping in church

"It is not fitting to applaud the servant in the house of his Master."
- Pope St. Pius X on clapping in church.

"Wherever applause breaks out in the liturgy because of some human achievement, it is a sure sign that the essence of liturgy has totally disappeared and been replaced by a kind of religious entertainment."
-Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger

Thanks for the reference. Nothing grinds on me more when during Mass, the priest asking to give this or that person a big round of applause.
