"Kneeling is a posture suited to private, personal prayer; kneeling tends to close out people around us. This should never occur in liturgy."
Gosh, I worship at an Anglican Use Parish, and we kneel for the entire liturgy of the Eucharist.
Oh, also, we have statues, stations of the Cross (indoors, and out), and votives out the whazooooo. Oh, we even have those cool processional Lanterns for night time Processions, and our Tabernacle is front, and center...and I thought the Anglican Use was a fruit of Vatican II..dummy me.
The AU is one of the best things that came out of the XXth Century sock. The liberal fruit of the spirit of V2 wanted it because of the married priest angle. They are gnashing their teeth over the orthodoxy being shown though, I'm sure.
