**I was so sure that when they were coming in to genuflect that they were really “bowing down” to these carved images.
Many of them actually are. That’s not what the Church teaches, but many of the less educated actually worship the icons, etc.**
I know nobody who actually does so, and what’s more, y ou don’t either, though I’ll bet you think you do.
I really doubt that God has granted you to see into other people’s hearts and know what their true intentions are.**
