Interesting. I found an article about the Dominican rite discussing what is called "Prostration on the forms," which was done during parts of the canon until 1963, when it was replaced with simple kneeling. Here is a pic of it

As far as sacred planking goes, I have seen people prostrate themselves at an NO parish when the blessed sacrament was exposed for adoration, so I suppose it has a few practitioners. The prostration during mass reminds of of something my grandfather told me about going to mass when he was a kid. He told me that his mother and many of the more devout members of the parish would approach the altar rail at communion time crawling on their knees. What  a great act of devotion.

For what it's worth...

Many years ago I knew an aged Dominican priest (barely able to walk) who prostrated himself before the Blessed Sacrament. Edifying.

This might be a solution to the lack of altar rails in churches when the Church recovers the faith.

During Adoration, I have seen people in an NO parish drop to their knees on entering the chapel, crawl to where they want to kneel or sit and prostrate themselves before entering the pew.

:LOL:

I don't think that would happen. Possible I suppose, but.... naw.

I've often prayed after the weekday noon Mass at this local Dominican praish that I see the day the dominican Rite returns to the intact high altar.

You mean cruciform at the Unde et memores? The Dominican rite does that, too.

Where did this tradition stem from? Premonstratensians (they still do it today) from where Dominicans branched from or the Sarum Rite?
