What a fine idea! Maybe I should do more to appear like a "nutter" at Mass!
Both the orans posture and the hand holding are the result of poor seminary formation. It shows a paradigm shift from uniting around the unbloody sacrifice of Calvary at the Altar, to exhibiting a "fellowship of the community" with each other. This is one reason that in many, but certainly not all NO Churhes it is more quiet in a bowling alley than in Church before mass.
Thanks and Happy New Year to all
