Now hold it right there, mister! That is NOT how we enter a pew at church! Go back and try it again. Nope! Try again! That is still not the correct way we enter a pew. Maybe you need to be reminded why entering a pew reverently is important. Inside this box, which we call a tabernacle, dwells our Lord Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. It is truly His body, blood, soul, and divinity within.
Therefore, we must show reverence to Him every time we enter a church and enter a pew. When walking to the pew you want, make a complete stop. Make eye contact with the tabernacle ahead, where dwells our Lord. Genuflect. This means kneel down with one knee making complete contact with the floor. While genuflecting, slowly and reverently, make the sign of the cross. Then, stand back up and enter the pew. Once there, kneel down on the kneeler and say a prayer. Don’t just sit. Try again! THAT’S how we enter a pew at church. Spread the word.
