2 Questions, very simple:
I hope this is a unique thing to me, but I fear it is not. I have been to several different Churches in my life, at none of them did the Priest or the congregation bow en masse in reverence to the Incarnation, despite it being in the Missalette, nor did the Priest ever point out that we should. Why has this fallen by the wayside?
Same thing for kneeling during the Creed for the Annunciation and Christmas. It never happens, even though it should. Again, why?
I realize some Priests are more orthodox/traditional than others, but I feel like this is almost everywhere, not just an isolated happenstance for the Churches I have gone to. Have ALL priests really just let this practice largely slip into irrelevance without a second thought?
