Checking in on IGRM changes Peace, all. One particular thing has me curious: yours or your parishioners' reception of head-nodding before receiving Communion. At my parish I find compliance is running about 50% or better, but a few people have gotten really distracted over it, even to the point of forgetting to say "Amen" after they receive. By the way, I still count about 2/3 of my parishioners making their reverence after Communion as well. That seems not to have changed at all. For the record, I think we'd be better off with more mindfulness at liturgy. I'm not sure I see how the new practices contribute to "reverence," and how that could ever be legislated anyway. Any ideas or thoughts?
