Cathy's Head Scratchers (No, Not Lice!)
Just musing "aloud"
*Why do we kneel before the exposed Sacrament in adoration and genuflect before the Sacrament in the Tabernacle but NOT kneel to actually receive it?
*Why a baldachine (usually only in pre-1960 built churches, though occasionally you'll find one in a well-built newer church) over the "old" high altar just as there is a baldacchinno (sp) carried over the Sacrament in Procession but then this freestanding altar (for the sacrifice) is plopped in front of it and the priests are supposed to use that and ignore the high altar? Doesn't the OT tell us that the Israelites put up tents for the Lord (a visual of the baldachine)?
