I did some research on this topic all over the internet. In the TLM, people kneel after the Agnus Dei (at least in my Parish). I also researched that in the United States it is customary to kneel after the Agnus Dei until you go up to receive Holy Communion. However, this is not the norm at the other parish I go to for Nouvs Ordo mass (I live in California). My friend who’s from the east coast said everyone kneels after the agnus dei, but west coast people remain standing. So, just a few questions:
What is the norm in other countries?
What does your parish do and please state what part of the country you’re from.
My theory is if they stand after the Agnus Dei in Mexico and Europe, then it would explain why only a select few kneel and most of the congregation in my other Parish remain standing since we have a huge Croatian, Mexican, and Italian population. Thanks for you imput. I find liturgy fascinating, and I cant wait for seminary! You know, someone should compile a list of liturgical “norms” or customs for different countries, that’d be interesting, like how its normal in the US to receive HC in the hands standing, while its the norm in most dioceses in Mexico to kneel and receive on the tongue. Sorry, I digress.
