If the tabernacle is present at the altar, then the celebrant genuflects ONLY when entering and on leaving, but NOT during the mass itself. If there is no tabernacle present (like at most modern US churches), the celebrant genuflects at the presentation of the host, the chalice, and at communion. So it sounds like this took place at an altar that has a tabernacle.
People are getting desperate to find fault with this man. He didn’t genuflect. So what?
And here is a picture of the Tabernacle in the Sistine Chapel.
I’m not sure it is a woman’s place to correct the pope.
The world is so utterly screwed and lost through godless deception PING!
What does the Bible teach about when and how to genuflect?
This mabe a dumb question to some, but what exactly does the pope do? he cant save you, or forgive your sins, so what is there for?- just curious
Where in the Bible does it say that anyone should venerate "Our Lady" in order to respect her son?
It doesn't. Spoken by a Pharisee or Sadducee? Matthew 23 (New International Version)
"9. And do not call anyone on earth 'father,' for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. 10. Nor are you to be called 'teacher,' for you have one Teacher, the Christ. 11. The greatest among you will be your servant. 12. For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. 13. Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.
"24. You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel. 25. Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. 26. Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean. 27. Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of dead men's bones and everything unclean. 28. In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness."
Ping for later
I just remembered something. Back in December there was a lot of stuff going around about her getting arrested and her websites going down for non-payment, etc.
Since then, the posts have gotten completely nuts like this. Her facebook page now is full of her posting mortgage spam and says it is no longer an official page but is still cross linked to the page linked in the original post.
Do you think someone seized her website when she didn’t pay and is trolling in her name?
This kind of stuff is just way over the top, even for her.
We’re in deep, deep doo-doo?
(She gots a mouse in her pocketses?)
What a coinkydink.
Obama, too, does weird bow-things...
Lighten up Francis....
I suppose if your faith is legalistic, violations are bound to occur.
Reminds me of the time someone was complaining that someone said “aye-man” instead of “ah-men”. How day he pronounce it that way...blashphemer
As a southern baptist i have a hard time understanding what this has to do with salvation
Or robe colors
He seems like a far right Jesuit
Somebody willing to purge this body of apostate queerdom
I pray so...a strong diligent Catholic church that enforces scripture on it’s Faithful helps all of us
