Hokay, you know I am one of these VatII babies...I just want to know why the dudes kneeling near the celebrant have to hold onto his garment. Looks like they are afraid he is going to take off. I've seen this before but it makes no sense to me.

O tell me padre!

When the vestments were heavy laden with embroidered images and ornamentation, a person would help the good father get around. The vestments were moved out of the way to avoid tripping and other ungraceful moments. This assistance, after time, became the norm whether the vestments were heavy or not.
