I recognize that, after that last post, I owe all of you a happy thought. So, without this devolving into Scotian hemming and hawwing about rubrics, I have just the thing.
At Mass the other day, right after the priest announced the sign of peace, the first person he gave the sign of peace to was Our Lord, kissing the Blessed Sacrament before turning the shake the hand of the server.
I really liked that. It also sort of solves the "why do we all suddenly ignore Jesus on the altar" conundrum of the Sign of Peace.
