Catholic Word of the Day: STANDING, 09-14-11 ^ | 09-14-11 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Posted on 09/14/2011 10:31:13 AM PDT by Salvation

Featured Term (selected at random):


A posture for various parts of the Eucharistic liturgy and the Divine Office. Since different countries have different customs, the episcopal conferences have given corresponding directives to the people. From time immemorial, however, standing has been customary during the reading of the Gospel and the recitation or singing of the Creed, the Preface, and Sanctus.

All items in this dictionary are from Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary, © Eternal Life. Used with permission.

KEYWORDS: catholic; catholiclist; liturgy
Does there need to be less standing and more kneeling during the Mass?

(If only the standing were limited to the list above!)
