Sinful KneelersA clarification on Father Tran's "mortal sin" comment. Kneeling when contrary to norms is described as an issue of rebellion and disobedience. The spectre of disrespect for the pope is brought into it. I wish all sides would just get over themselves. Kneeling at the accustomed times, or parishes that build churches without kneelers at all: these should, in charity, be tolerated. Here's a question for you: Does a kneeler have to have the front "armrest?" ... or could it just be a basic floor cushion (or some variation thereof)? BYOK, right?
