At the church which I presently attend many members of the congregation raise their hands in charismatic fashion at frequent part of the mass: during the Gospel readings, during some prayers and some just spontaneously. My question is: Is this liturgically correct? Personally, I am uncomfortable with it and believe it introduces devotional practices which don’t belong to the liturgy of the Mass. But, as my wife will attest, I am frequently wrong, and perhaps it extends to this as well. You insights would be appreciated.
