IF Y OU ARE CATHOLIC, a practicing Catholic I might add, would you mind telling me the purpose of sitting, standing and kneeling? Is it optional?
There is a family that refuses to kneel and seems to always find my family and sit in front of us. I have started getting to church 30 minutes early just to make sure I sit in the very front pew.
Getting there early kind of work, but now they insist on sitting right next to us. Last week they climbed over a man to sit next to us and the man had to move because there was not enough room. One member of the family does not go to communion. When I came back from communion he refused to scooch his knees back so I could get past him. I ended up smacking my legs against his knees. Why bother going to church if you are not going to participate? Shouldn't they be kneeling with us?

I never asked. I believe it's just a form of respect too. It is optional especially for those who are disabled. With my last pregnancy I did not kneel, I just sat. I couldn't with my big belly. As for the people following you, that is creepy. I would just keep trying to avoid them by moving around the church pews each week.

Somehow I skipped the communion part. Yes he probably is not a Catholic but they are welcome.
