Orans, a rant.

Chris cites some good articles Holding hands and the Orans position
So there you have it. If you are a hand-holder or use the Orans posture during the Our Father and ever find yourself standing next to me during Mass do not be alarmed or offended that I do not participate. I am simply trying to follow the rubrics of the Mass as prescribed by the Holy See.
Chris puts it bluntly here, but that is how many non-hand-holders feel. I tell my kids to fold their hands, bow their head and close their eyes. That way there is no awkward feeling when someone doesn't take the hint and stands there reaching.
