Q: Why do Catholics genuflect and kneel in church, and why don’t Protestants?

A: Jesus Christ is truly and substantially present, body, blood, soul and divinity, in the tabernacle of every Catholic Church, the world over.

Even if he wasn’t, the altar upon which the bread and wine is transformed into his body and blood is there, and it has been made holy by his divine presence.

 Either of the above is good enough reason for genuflecting.

Protestants: 1) Do not have the priestly authority to transform bread and wine into Jesus. 2) Usually claim that it can’t be done, anyway. 3) Have no altar that has been made holy by the real presence of Christ.

Romans 14:11  For it is written: As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me and every tongue shall confess to God.
