On holding hands

Fr. Stephanos brings some light to the hand-holding debate, Holding hands really adds nothing to the Mass
fellowship/communion among believers
personal devotion to Christ.
I don't hold hands and most of my kids don't like it either. I won't be so rude to jerk my hand away if someone manages to grab it. But usually hand holding leads to people missing half of the prayer because they are moving around, looking for a hand or twisting to hold hands with someone behind them.
It is such a distraction. Not to mention the brotherly contest of squeezing each others hands.
