Did you know that at the elevation in pre-Reformation England, some of the faithful were known to call out, "'eave 'im 'igher!"
That would be, "Heave Him higher" so they could see the Sacred Host - and the priest better have held Him there a good while so they could adore.
That may explain why altar boys had to hold the chasuble, so the priest wouldn't tire under the weight of its embroiderie. Don'tchya know?
I like that.
