I am new to Traditional Catholicism but I love what I'm learning about my faith and how it was before V2. Recently, I started veiling at Mass and kneeling while receiving the Eucharist. However, I attend a Novus Ordo Mass, my priest is not very conservative and I'm the only one who does this. Each and every time I go up for Communion, my priest roles his eyes. I asked him if it were ok, before I started doing it and he didn't say "no" but he didn't say "yes" either. He gave me a long lecture of how it holds up the line and how we have a lot of people and he made me feel like I'm adding so much extra time to the whole Mass by my choice of reverence. I'm not doing it to be "holier than thou", I just want to do it because I am approaching and receiving the King of Kings and He deserves at least that amount of respect.
The reason I'm not putting this in the Traditional Catholic forum is because I know how they will respond but I want to hear from other priest or lay people. Am I wrong to do it in NO mass? Also, I don't go to the Trinidine Mass every weekend because its about 2 hours from me and I can't afford the gas price right now.... trust me, I would if I could.
The "norm for receiving" in the U.S. is standing.
A local church, that I attend, has 600-700 communicants on a given weekend. There is one that kneels, only one and he waits until the end or near to the end to receive. He blends in rather than stands out.
If you try this your priest may change his attitude towards you, as this clearly seems to have upset you.
Last tuesday morning mass, at a different church , we utilized the communion rail: at last nights mass all knelt on marble steps, no rail. Last nights mass was at a monastery, no rails.
All three masses were in the ordinary form, one ad-orientum, two ad populum.
If you want to cover your head do so, many have continued that practise.
If you want to kneel do so, just do not trip the person in front of you., not a pretty site.
