Holding Hands at Mass

. . .my wife Janet and I always cringe at a new parish when it comes time for the Our Father.  We quickly bow our heads & close our eyes; I clutch my hands close to my chest (& she does the same) and we start to pray — hoping some aggressive hand-holder doesn’t reach over & insist on tearing my hands apart so I can warmly hold theirs during the prayer. . .
