In Exodus 3:5, God said to Moses to remove his sandals from his feet, for the place where he stand is holy ground. At the altar, since Jesus is present, isn't it a similarly holy place? In that case why do the celebrant and altar servers not remove their shoes when they are at the altar ?
Peace and Love in Christ.
I know there is a theological reason behind this and I want someone to answer this
but I think priests wear shoes for a pratical reason. It is a common courtesy to wear shoes when at large gatherings like Mass. I don't think people want to see Fathers bare feet while he is celebrating the Mass.
the GIRM is silent about foot wear for the mass so there is nothing obligating him to wear shoes or not.
