I’ve looked at a couple TLM mass videos by FSSP and SSPX that were recorded in different parts of France. I’ve noticed that the faithful make the sign of the cross as the processional cross passes by both during the entrance and sortie. I was wondering, if there are any French catholics here, or live/ have lived in France. These were are TLM masses, but at my parish, we dont do that. I understand it is appropriate to make the sign of the cross when a bishop is processing by, since he is blessing the faithful. I’m not sure if they do this in Novus Ordo masses in France.
Is this a general French custom? Do the Italians, Hispanics, Poles do this? For those TLM-goers, do you do this?
