The lack of reverence for the Body and Blood of Christ exhibited in Catholic Churches these days is disgraceful. If some people feel that to kneel before God is offensive to them, they should make note that they offend the many of us who attend Mass with the desire to respect Jesus in the Holy Sacrament. The very idea that someone would blame a feeling of inferiority as an excuse for not kneeling before God Almight is outrageous. An exagerated sense of superiority sounds more like it.
