One Optional Gesture Not Announced At St. Agnes

23 Feb

This is during Lent and Advent, that the Sign of Peace is not announced at the Ordinary Form of Mass. Not a bad idea whose time has come.
I think that the Sign of Peace will occur at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs in Forest Hills, Queens. It basically is a hand wave, nicknamed by me as “The Martyrs Wave.”
The last time that there was no Sign of Peace was Saturday, November 28th, 1964, when all Masses were still in Latin. The Next Day, on Sunday, November 29th, 1964, with the use of Vernacular in the Mass of the Tridentine Form, the Sign of Peace appeared. And the rest is History with all the Novelties and other Liturgical Abuses.

Kyrie Elaison!

M, Eh!
