Liturgical Gestures: Sitting
There is no particular religious significance to the position of sitting. It is a posture of receptive listening and resting. It became popular for the listening parts of the Mass only after pews were introduced into churches in the 16th century. Pews became popular first in reform churches, where services concentrated on listening to Scripture and preaching.
The middle child of postures, perhaps.
Not the complete abandon of lying down,
Not the height of power, standing in full stature,
but somewhere in the middle between action and rest.
We sit still, alert yet calm,
serene but watchful.
We sit still, willing to listen
ready to be beckoned, waiting, receptive, open.
In this posture, the Word of the Lord
may begin to be heard.
In the charity of your prayers, please remember the family of
Mary Ann Simon
, who died today. Her funeral arrangements are pending. May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace.
Good night, good people.
