    in our state, Penna, not the state of Grace!, the bishops made a uniform policy: no cup, no peace sign sharing.

    Where I assist in NJ: they allow the Cup and encourage the sign of peace: but bowing, acknowledging….
    the deacon/myself do as does the pope:
    without mitre, white cassock, red shoes, beard (oh, wait, that’s santa: skip beard)…… we place our arms on each others shoulders & embrace.

    The thing that drives the EF crazy is that they now have to LOOK at others, no longer ignoring the shaking of hands! Veils are flying, prayer books are falling, people are dying (is this 2012?)!!!

    I’m greatly distressed by those who hold up EF as in some way superior to the OF. There is noting distracting about the Pax if it’s understood correctly.

  • Aaron

    I’m reminded why I love the Traditional Latin Mass. No distracting hand shaking right before Holy Communion, and no priests making up their own rules.
