Why We Genuflect

If you have ever wondered why we genuflect (or even what the word “genuflect” means), This short video makes it crystal clear.

It’s amazing what we are saying even when we don’t know what it is we are saying…

By genuflecting before the tabernacle at church, we’re saying at least one of three things with our bodies. Those three things have to do with humility, service, and love. In this video, Fr. Mike Schmitz explains how a simple kneel before we enter the pew can express so much.
