Pope Francis deplores the use of cell phones during Mass. However I ask his reconsideration in this respect.

The Mass is certainly not a place for photography. But what about cell phones that have become “Smart Phones” and are aids to hearing?

Today, for the cost of about $50, the parish church can be equipped to allow a hearing disabled person such as myself to “read” the sound system audio of the Mass on their smart phone or tablet. This absolutely new advancement is a God-send to those with hearing loss.

I have been using this advancement for about two years and pray for the day when churches and other assembly areas adapt. The first event use of this advancement was introduced in Baton Rouge one month ago. For more information, contact me at mail@gfusa.net.
