The Our Father and the "Orans" Gesture

On his "In the light of the Law" blog, canonist Edward Peters treats the subject of posture during the Lord's Prayer,   the weird and contradictory, (my words, not his,) situation that now obtains, and the obvious fix.
Oddly, I have noticed at my parish, one lay reader who is a religious scholar of some sort seems to be the only one, (besides Himself and me,) who does not take the orans posture or hold hands - EXCEPT THE PRIEST.
No, our pastor already prays the Our Father with his hands clasped... er, in prayer.
