Just looking for opinions and how others would handle this.
I cannot genuflect by going down on my right knee.
It’s not so much about going down as it is getting back up.
That said, I give a profound bow (from the waist) when I pass by the tabernacle, or during adoration.
I have had one person make a comment to me that I am wrong by not genuflecting, and they do it everytime they see me at Adoration. I have shared with this person that I have a health issue, but because I don’t look “sick” it is just assumed that I want to do things “my way”.
I know that that Church never asks us to do the impossible, and I am comfortable in doing what I do. My question is, would anyone here ever take it upon themselves to continue to admonish someone for something they have no control over, especially once you have learned the truth?
And how would you deal with it?
My answer has become, "Yes, I know you think I am wrong, please pray that God gives me some new joints, please & thank you."
FWIW, that did not go over very well.
I know all I can do is pray for this person, I am just wondering how others have dealt with these types of situations.
