The rite to pray: Eastern Catholics and the orans posture

In the previous issue of The Catholic Weekly, Fr John Flader wrote about the suitability of laypeople praying in the orans posture with arms outstretched during Mass, especially during the Our Father. Fr Flader’s view is that laypeople perhaps ought to shy away from imitating actions more properly reserved for the priest.

Q and A with Fr Flader: Is it OK to pray...

Dear Father, Some people in my parish pray the Our Father in Mass with their arms outstretched, like the priest, and I find this strange. Is it permitted? And how about holding hands with the persons on either side while saying the Our Father?
