Liturgical Observation: Stand or Rise?

Just a little observation:

If you choose to give audible rubrics (which I don’t recommend as they distract from the liturgy) remember this: bread rises and people stand.

  1. LOL. AMEN! Professor Pokorny hammered that into our head at sem many moons ago.

  2. We do rise… that is: to assume an upright position especially from lying, kneeling, or sitting. I never understood this linguistically ignorant distinction… it is simple (M-W definition 4 b 2… retarded).
