What are your thoughts about what to do during streamed Masses? I tend to think that in this time where it is impossible to attend Mass, it is at least beneficial to be united with one going on someplace else, with the preference for a live Mass, instead of a recording. Do you recommend the usual postures and actions? I’m feeling a little funny about kneeling in front of a TV, regardless of Who is being broadcast. In human terms, I would stand up if you, the Pope, or the President walked into my room, but I wouldn’t do it if you just appeared on a webcast.
That’s a really good question.
I think you can do as you please. If you want to kneel, kneel. If you prefer to sit, okay.
It could be a good practice to follow carefully the prayers of the Mass. If you are able to make a Spiritual Communion, that would be great.
I wonder what others who read this might pitch in.
If some of you are watching Masses live streamed on the internet, what are your practices?
