Ok...this is just a little rant of mine...but does anyone else have a parishioner...or several parishioners for that fact, who like to signal a touchdown every time the priest gets to the end of the "Our Father"? I know I see it more and more today than I did when I first converted to Catholicism...it is almost like you are not cool unless you do...heck, I even have people looking around and giving me dirty looks because I am not holding my hands up like my armpits are on fire...for those of you who don't know what I am talking about...it looks a little like this:
"For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours, now and forever...."
Is this just the most asinine thing you have ever seen??? What is even more asinine is that it is not condemned by priest and other parishioners...they seem to accept and even promote these types of abuses. Lord help us all.
