Clapping It Up During a Sermon?

“Let us even now establish this rule, that no hearer be permitted to applaud in the midst of any person’s discourse, but if he needs to admire the homily let him admire in silence…it is far better that one’s hearer, having listened in silence, should by his memory throughout all time applaud.”

— St John Chrysostom, Homily 30 on Acts
