Kneeling at the consecration

From Mr Neville Edwards

Sir, Section 21 of the General Instruction of the Roman Missal directs that the people should normally "kneel at the Consecration" as Dr Donald Withey states (Letters, 28 January).

It seems to me that the best practical way of following this instruction is to kneel from after the Sanctus until the end of the Eucharistic Prayer as we do at present. This is really an extended act of reverence "at the Consecration", and seems preferable to changes of posture being made by the people at other points within the Eucharistic Prayer, which would cause confusion.

Yours faithfully, NEVILLE EDWARDS Diss, Norfolk.
