Just a question. I’m from Canada and the norms at the consecration is to kneel. However, we have had a few renegade bishops and out west there are large areas where no one kneels during the consecration.
I’ve just recently moved to a small city where the 3 Catholic churches. All of them kneel at the consecration during the weekend masses. However one of them, during the week, has its masses in a side chapel, where there are no kneelers and everyone stands during the consecration. The part that disturbs me most is that the parish priest is one of the diocese’s liturgical experts.
So, I could use a little help to understand where the whole standing thing is coming from. The second part of the question is whether or not the new approved liturgy does away with kneeling???
