This Is Why Catholics Genuflect at Mass | #954

Fr. Joel Homilies 1 Comment

Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe (C) God is, and God created all that is. But there was trouble in Paradise: the Enemy convinced Adam and Eve to decide right and wrong for themselves. They became slaves of fear, sin, and death. Now God has sent Jesus to set us free. Jesus restores our identity as God’s children, atones for our sins, and leads us to the Kingdom of God. Will you serve Jesus? When we genuflect at Mass, we are saying: I give you the honor, glory and praise. I put my life at the service of the true King.

    I used to greet God when I genuflected in church. “Good Morning, God; Hello God.” Maybe even a “Glad to see you, God”. Now I say, “How can I serve you today, God”. Thanks for the thoughtful message on this important but often forgotten gesture.
