Wolfgang Lassy (57) has written a two-page letter to Pope Francis “appealing to his Holiness to help with this burning issue,” reports The Local At.

The cathedral bell rings four times an hour and at midnight it chimes 28 times. Lassy has measured the sound levels of the bell and says that at its peak it is 77 decibels – by law, in a residential area, noise levels should not exceed 50 decibels, although this doesn’t apply to churches.
