The Theology of Kneeling

This was written by our Holy Father Benedict XVI in 2002 when he was then Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger:
There are groups, of no small influence, who are trying to talk us out of kneeling. "It doesn't suit our culture", they say (which culture?) "It's not right for a grown man to do this -- he should face God on his feet". Or again: "It's not appropriate for redeemed man -- he has been set free by Christ and doesn't need to kneel any more".
As a woman, I feel that a man is never more manlier than when he is on his knees before our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.
