Every so often, it’s good to review the four fundamental postures us Catholics adopt through the course of the Mass. So here’s a basic primer courtesy of A Catholic Misfit. Ready?
Kneeling – primarily during times of adoration, such as the consecration.
Sitting – primarily during times of listening, such as the homily.
Standing – primarily during times of prayer, such as professing the Creed.
Sleeping – primarily during the long form of the Gospel.
Ohmigosh! I nearly forgot about the fifth posture: when the priest announces “And now some words about the bishop’s annual CSA drive.”
