I am kind of puzzled by something. You know when you first come into church and you genuflect by the pew and then pull out the kneeler rail and you kneel. Well when I first kneel, I CLOSE my eyes and pray a few moments and then cross myself. But here is my question. I couldn’t help but observe what other people do when they enter and kneel.
They don't seem to be praying at all, for they kneel alright, but they just stare straight ahead with their eyes WIDE OPEN and then cross themselves, and are seated. I mean almost everyone does this, while I close my eyes and pray. Aren't you suppose to pray? Just what are all these people doing when they just stare straight ahead with their eyes open?
