My mother-in-law saw a priest answer a text while celebrating Mass -- and there was no co-celebrant! And it was just before the consecration.

At the parish where I attended Christmas morning mass, Just before the final blessing, the Priest's cell phone rang. it was an "arranged greeting" from the former parish priest. The former parish priest had started a tradition of taking a call from Santa Claus just before the final blessing, and wanted to carry it on this way.

The parishioners loved it...I think it must be one of those tickling ears things.
