To Kneel in front of the Eucharist is a profession of freedom

On the Feast of Corpus Christi, May 22 2008,

Pope Benedict said:“To kneel in front of the Eucharist
is a profession of freedom: whoever bows before Jesus
cannot and should not prostrate himself before
any earthly power, no matter how strong.
We Christians only kneel before God,
before the Most Blessed Sacrament,
because we believe and know that the one true God is present,
who created the world and loved man so much
that for his sake, he gave his only begotten Son (cfr Jn 3,16).”

REFLECTION: Corpus Christi, Enthroning the Lord
The Eucharist is a mystery that is meant to plunge its roots
deeply into every area of our lives.
It is a gift to be received and lived.
Pope: Eucharist is a Revolution
Popes Preacher: ‘The Two Bodies of Christ’
Christianity, a Revolution in History
