OK, I’m confused. Just moved to a new parish. I understand that in the past it was the custom everywhere (in the Latin Rite) to kneel after recieving communion. I also understand that in the last few decades there was a lot of monkey-ing around with liturgical practices and that a lot of people stopped kneeling altogether for the entire Mass and ended up standing throughout the Communion rite.
In my old parish, our priest told us that the USCCB (did I get that right?) laid down the norm that (in the USA) we should stand after recieving Communion until all have recieved as a sign of unity. In my new parish however, which has some serious liturgical irregularities, people are still kneeling after Communion for the most part with a lone one or two people standing until all have received. What is the desired normative posture after receiving Communion for Catholics in the USA?
If it is standing, should I stand even though most everyone else is kneeling? I don’t want to seem disrepectful of their traditions.
Thank you for your time in answering this question.
