Deacon's Etiquette

it is my understanding that in the greek practise, kissing the hands of deacons was both common and proper, as a sign of respect to the hands that have touched Communion (not for a blessing); whereas it is in the russian practise that kissing the deacon's hands is wrong. can someone verify this before any changes are made? oea 00:14, 16 Jul 2005 (EDT)
