Good of you to put this up to remind (or school) people. Many parishioners do not receive this direction from their priests, so they just don’t know any better. At one of the daily Mass parishes we go to, some of the fifty of so people who regularly attend actually move out of their pews to gather with all the others to hold hands. Reminds me of a children’s game. Some people are even turned sideways (to the altar), etc.
