Kneelers-Not Just For Mass Anymore!
Why have a kneeler at home? Well, one of the things I have come to appreciate since becoming Catholic is the way in which the Mass directs our hearts and minds and bodies to worship God. We genuflect upon entering the sanctuary acknowledging the real presence of Christ in the tabernacle. We kneel during the Eucharistic prayers, we stand during the proclamation of the gospel. We end by kneeling and silently reflecting on the goodness of God to allow us to take Him into us through the Eucharist. We genuflect once again at the conclusion of Mass as we leave the sanctuary, once again honoring the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
So after almost 6 years of worshiping in the Catholic Church, needless to say I have gotten used to kneeling. Something I frankly admit, I did not do as much as I should have in my life BC.(Before Catholic) So why just kneel in prayer during Mass? Bet if I had a comfy kneeler I could put in a hidden area (like my studio in the basement) I might be encouraged to spend a little more time on my knees. After looking up the prices of kneelers on-line, I decided to start a little project. I still need to build and attach the kneeler pads. Here it is so far.
