LENTCAzT 2019 – 09 Thursday in the 1st Week of Lent: Kneeling expresses what standing does not

These daily 5 minute podcasts are intended to give you a small boost every day, a little encouragement in your own use of this holy season.

Today is Thursday in the 1st Week of Lent.

Fr. James Jackson helps us to understand why we kneel at Holy Mass in his splendid book:

 Nothing Superfluous: An Explanation of the Symbolism of the Rite of St. Gregory the Great

I provide these especially in gratitude to benefactors who help me and this blog.

    I’ve been longing to gain a deeper understanding of the Mass. The TLM, that is, so this book is a ‘must get’ for me. Thank you, Fr Z for the podcast.

    Thanks, Father!

    Or sitting. Lutherans, who always want to go back to the “original” Church, which they fondly imagine as non-Catholic, have since Luther added pews to churches, so that they can sit. As the sermons make the Service so long. Not very logical.

  3. About 20 years and a couple of bishops ago, we were commanded to stand at the Agnus Dei. Now I have just heard that our current bishop is bringing back kneeling in our diocese.

    Gab: Happy reading, Fr. Jackson’s book is well worth the time.
