(taking Juliet's hand) Your hand is like a holy place that my hand is unworthy to visit. If you're offended by the touch of my hand, my two lips are standing here like blushing pilgrims, ready to make things better with a kiss.
Good pilgrim, you don't give your hand enough credit. By holding my hand you show polite devotion. After all, pilgrims touch hands of statues of saints. Holding one palm against another is like a kiss.
Don't saints and pilgrims have lips too?
Romeo is intimidated to hold Juliet's hand. Romeo also want's to kiss Juliet but wants her permission first.
Yes, pilgrim-they have lips that they're suppose to pray with.
Juliet does not mind Romeo holding her hand. In fact Juliet see's it as a polite way to show love/ loyalty. Juliet also says holding hands is another form/ way of kissing.
Well then, saint, let lips do what hands do. I'm praying for you to kiss me. Please grant my prayer so my faith doesn't turn to despair.
Romeo was pointing out pilgrims and saints have lips too.
Juliet answered yes to Romeo's question and added that there lips are used to pray with.
Romeo is telling Juliet in a hidden way to let him kiss her.
