Let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD who made us!

Unless, of course, you're above that sort of thing...

Reminded during the Office of Readings, (Come, let us worship and bow down, bend the knee before the Lord who made us,) this morning, of a commentator at Praytell who believes, "And as far as kneeling, it’s a sign of slavery…we don’t kneel in the majority of cultures," and of others who pretty much affirm her in this belief.

The Douay was very abject: Come let us adore and fall down: and weep before the Lord that made us.

Thank God we're past all that, and can relate to God as equals, as peers, (which that poor pre-conciliar guy in Gethsemane couldn't...)

The same kneeling-averse commentator trotted out the tired old meme that "we don't believe the way we used to," and "Vatican Two changed that bad old theology," but as usual for those who make such claims, can't or won't provide specifics.
