"As for holding hands, there is no prescribed posture for the hands during the Our Father and that, so far at least, neither the Holy See nor the U.S. bishops' conference has officially addressed it.  The bow, not genuflect) should happen…"

"My answer was on topic, as I was trying to give some background to the question.:  We are given instructions on what we are to do during the Mass, and it is contained in what is known as the GIRM.  The GIRM says nothing about holding hands…"

Holding Hands During the Our Father

I have heard some comment about how it's wrong for parishioners to hold hands during the Our Father during Mass. Some do it at my Parrish (well actually most) and I don't see how there could be something wrong with it. Of course one doesn't have to at my Parish and no one takes offense if one doesn't. I'm just interested in why some think it's wrong.I have another question. When going up for communion one is suppose to bow their head (or genuflect) before taking the Host or the Cup. I've seen…See More

Nicholas Miller replied to Bearwolf's discussion Why Do They Bother Going To Mass? in the group Catholic Men
"I have three children four and under. I never get sit through a full Mass. Children misbehaving is not what I thought the original poster was talking about. I thought it was older people who should know better."

Sir replied to Bearwolf's discussion Why Do They Bother Going To Mass? in the group Catholic Men

First date: success not optional but mandatory

I have a date tomorrow night with a girl I met online. While this may sound like great news and the answer to lifelong joy, I want to make sure that this leads to a second date, and that I don't make a "death move" to end all chances of seeing her again. This is the early cultivation phase of a relationship, the kind of relationship I have been praying for , that leads to romantic love, marriage and procreation.  All of my experience with the few dating I have has been unsuccessfulSo, at this…See More
