Opening Prayer At Altar

Recommended Posts

Yes. In those instances where there is no server and a priest must hold his hands in the orans position for the presidential prayers, saying them from the altar is the usual way to accomplish that. I've had to do it myself. I would say that it is a better liturgical expression from the chair, it's normal place, but I do not think there is anything illicit in doing it from the altar. Of course in the extra ordinary form of the Roman Rite, most of the prayers are said from the altar.
