So tell me....

......At the beginning of mass, do you kiss the biretta followed by the priest's hand, or is it hand first then biretta?
I served mass today and wasn't sure.

Hand, then object, when receiving; so kiss the hand first, when receiving the biretta at the start of Mass. At the end of Mass this is reversed, as you're giving the biretta to the celebrant.
