HI! I hope this is the place to ask this...I did a search and didn't get an answer.
I'm curious about kneeling. The people in the Eastern Catholic church I attend some Sundays don't kneel, and of course the people in the Latin church I attend do. But I understand that an Ecumenical council forbade kneeling on Sundays? So do you never kneel in Orthodox churches, or just not on Sundays? And I understand the Western Rite Orthodox do kneel? Does this question even make sense? I'm so confused.
And I'm wondering if kneeling wasn't proper practice on Sundays then why and when did it start in the West?
I ask this because I am investigating Orthodoxy. My husband is not as interested and when I said something about kneeling, he said he felt like it's the only proper posture for the consecration? But then he said, of course unless you prostrate yourself...
Thanks for any clarification on this.
