Televised mass


I don’t even know if this is the right place for this, but here it goes.

I watch daily mass on Ewtn! I was wondering if it is wrong if you don’t kneel during consecration?



No, it’s not wrong.




Remember, you are not present at Mass itself.

You are watching a PICTURE of a mass. Especially if you watch one of the repeat broadcasts.

It’s the same principle as if you were thumbing through a book with photgraphs of the stages of the mass, or a movie of one (film or video).


Thanks! I appreciate your replies!
