Help me out here people. I’ve been attending mass at an orthodox parish, which often includes lots of latin and TLM gestures into its Novus Ordo mass.
I’ve noticed all to often that everyone will nod their heads in unison at certain times, and most often I associate this with any time the name Jesus Christ is mentioned.
When saying the “Glory Be” in Latin, we bow down through the first half, “Gloria Patri, et filio, et spiritui sancto”, before rising and completing it.
But, there are other times that I pick up a head nod or bow and I can’t put my finger on it.
