"For every knee shall be bowed to Me" - Isaiah 45:24

“My children, kneel before your God in the Eucharist. Do not stand like you stand in meeting halls, but kneel and give Him a just love and observance of honor.” - Our Lady, July 14, 1979 

"In the beginning I gave to you, through your prophets, the establishment of My Church upon earth. The rules were simple but now have become changed and defiled to please the carnal nature of mankind. You must restore the holiness to My House! You must bend your knees in humility and penance." - Jesus, December 31, 1975

“If you do not bow your knees before your God, you shall be brought down forcefully to your knees. Clergy! Laymen! Forcefully to your knees!” - Jesus, July 25, 1979 

"The heads of all households--mothers, fathers will bend your knee now in prayer with your children. You must now appear to your God with a humble heart, do penance, make atonement and many sacrifices." - St. Michael, June 18, 1975

"I stress, I repeat the way given by the Father for you in the days ahead: prayer, atonement, and sacrifice. Much is needed. You must bend your knees to honor your God.” - Our Lady, July 15, 1974

“Do you think that the Eternal Father will allow you to recrucify My Son? I say to you as your Mother to make amends, do penance, return to your knees, remove yourselves from your involvement in worldly pleasures and gain and power—political aspirations for the enslavement of mankind.” - Our Lady, August 4, 1979 

"Your world will soon be engrossed in a major catastrophe, such as never been seen by mankind before--a war so great that none shall escape the effects of this great catastrophe.
     "What can you do, My child? You can pray and pray. Be on your knees. So few now bend their knees. War is a punishment for man's sins.” - Our Lady, August 14, 1974

"Pride, arrogance, lust, money, murders--all manner of corruption is set upon mankind because he will not listen. I will not say cannot listen--he will not listen. Therefore, he who will not listen must receive a just chastisement, so his ears will be forcefully opened, and he will bend his knee to his God.” - Our Lady, June 18, 1981

“I say unto the clergy, My Son’s priests and the clergy of the world: you have been blinded because of pride and arrogance. Your minds are confused with worldliness, humanism, and modernism. Pray on your knees! Take your heads out of the fog now while there is time, for your time is running out. Redeem yourselves in the eyes of the Eternal Father now.” - Our Lady, August 4, 1979 

“My Son has accepted His cross. Are there so few who will not accept a cross to save your world now? To save your Vicar now? Woe to the inhabitants of the earth! Could I take you now and open to you into sight what is coming upon mankind, you would soon be groveling upon the dust, praying on your knees and walking on your knees, to avoid the terrible destruction that shall be wrought by the Ball of Redemption! Many will die in the great flame of the Ball of Redemption.” - Our Lady, September 28, 1979 

“O My children, My Mother has cried bitter tears of anguish, for She has been given full knowledge of what is to be. She has tried to prepare you, to guide you through countless earth-years of time, to counsel you upon the direction to Heaven; but you have chosen in your arrogance and pride to build new religions, even bringing in hedonistic teachings and false gods. For this, My children, you are abandoned to your folly, and as such, you will find that you will be brought to your knees, forced to turn back from the wide road that you have chosen of your own free will.” - Jesus, November 24, 1979 

"You will all read the pages set down by John. You will not be ignorant of the days ahead, for man is always learning but never reaching the truth. Pray for the light and you will receive the understanding. Look for My Son and you will be given the way.
     "The future--yes, the pages must turn, but you can lessen the suffering and the losses to Our adversary, satan, if you will but care, if you would set aside your selfishness and body pleasures to pray and sacrifice for the days ahead when you will be forced to pray and sacrifice. You will not be asked--you will be forced to your knees!
     "Your God is a God of love and justice. The Kingdom of Heaven was created for all man, but man will not enter unless he repents on free will, unless he stops the offenses to the Sacred Heart of My Son. The desecration given Me I can stand, but you will not show irreverence to your God!” - Our Lady,
November 20, 1971 

"You cannot, you must not condone sin; you shall not rationalize sin until sin has become a way of life among you. It shall be brother against brother and sister against sister. Nation shall rise up against nation. There shall be disturbances of nature of such great magnitude that many lives shall be lost! You will be forced to your knees, and only then, in this time of great trial, will you turn back and look for the light.
     "My children, do you want punishment? Can you not give up your way of life, a sinful life, to save your soul, your spirit? Shall you destroy your eternal life with Us for the few short years you all have upon your earth? When you leave your body you have full consciousness. You will understand then, only too late, what you have given up.
     "There shall be much gnashing of teeth and weeping in the days to come. It is only through a merciful Eternal Father that you have not received the Ball upon you, but it is coming. The prayers of the faithful have gained several reprieves, but the balance is heavily to the left.” - Jesus,
April 17, 1976 

"Penance will be sent upon the world. In the mercy of the Eternal Father a heavy penance will be sent upon many.
     "My children, before this battle of the spirits is over you will all recognize the value of suffering. If you do not bow your knees before your God, you shall be brought down forcefully to your knees. Clergy! Laymen! Forcefully to your knees!
     "My Mother has been coming to you as a Mediatrix between God and man. She sends you and strews among you many roses. Many have thorns; the thorns are always with the roses. And you will always find, My child and My children, the cross beneath the roses. The road to Heaven is the way of the cross. Pick up your cross and follow Me. The way is narrow, and very few remain on it. Many are called, but few can be chosen.
     "Remain constant, My children. Fidelity--remain faithful and true, and you will be saved." - Jesus,
July 25, 1979 

"My child, I have cautioned you in the past and I repeat Myself for your welfare and the continued progress of your work, your mission from Heaven, to close your ears to those who seek to destroy the Mission from Heaven with idle tales of gossip and untruth. Know, My child, that satan is staging his final battle against all of the children of God. The warnings given from Heaven have not been accepted by all, but I assure you, My children, that soon--and very soon, I say--you will all be forced to your knees.” - Our Lady, December 24, 1976 

"Experimentation and all manners of abomination being committed in the name of humanism and modernism--for what but destruction! You travel about like the chickens without heads, flapping your wings in pride and arrogance, for your heads have been taken off. And those with heads, they extend into the clouds, dark clouds above them, blinded by their arrogance, blinded by their pride! Get down to your knees and take off this pride and arrogance that has made you blind to the truth!” - Our Lady, December 24, 1976 

"There will be sent upon your earth a great Warning of great magnitude. It will be recognizable to all. Many will see and still not believe. Pray for those who have covered themselves with blindness. When I speak to you, My child, of blindness, it is the state of the spirit. The world of man has lost sight of the road to the Kingdom. Man no longer honors My Son upon his knees. Should you not return to the rule, you will be forced to return to your knees.
     "I have been sending the word from the Father throughout the world. Many seers carry the word to the multitudes.
     "Your world and your country wallow in a cesspool of error, corruption, and debasement. Satan has set among you in the highest places of rule, giving them power for the destruction of human souls. These agents of hell have been placed in your schools to destroy your young; in your government to bring you to your knees before one who is not of God; and sadly, his agents have entered into the House of God to do battle.
     "Michael must be returned to the House of God immediately. Man's free will has cast him aside. He will not be returned unless man asks.”- Our Lady,
September 13, 1973 

"O My children, My Mother has cried bitter tears of anguish, for She has been given full knowledge of what is to be. She has tried to prepare you, to guide you through countless earth-years of time, to counsel you upon the direction to Heaven; but you have chosen in your arrogance and pride to build new religions, even bringing in hedonistic teachings and false gods. For this, My children, you are abandoned to your folly, and as such, you will find that you will be brought to your knees, forced to turn back from the wide road that you have chosen of your own free will.
     "As My Mother counseled you through many earth-years of visitations to you, that when a country gives itself over to Lucifer, discarding all knowledge of true faith and the Commandments of the Eternal Father, that country will be destroyed. The hand that will be set upon your country shall be heavy. My Mother has pleaded your cause to Heaven, but how many have listened to Her? How many have been willing to sacrifice their own selfish desires to save mankind? Too few, My children, I say too few! The balance is heavily to the left, leaving Heaven no recourse but to allow you to continue upon the road to your own destruction.” - Jesus,
November 24, 1979 

"If the words of My Mother go unheeded to this ungrateful generation, I assure you it will not be long before you will be forced to your knees! Hasten, harken, and listen, for the warn­ings given to you are urgent! The sands of time are running fast out, and you will not have another chance to turn your hourglass.” - Jesus, February 10, 1975 

"If I could receive permission from Heaven to open for you to all see the fierce destruction that is fast approaching your country and the world, you would come to your knees; you would walk on your knees to My Son in the Eucharist. But no! You continue making the same errors as in the past. You call down upon you a just chastisement.
     "My children, many have said My message is a frightening one, but what can I tell you but the truth? Gladly would I come to you with words of cheer, but I can only extend to you words of courage and caution.” - Our Lady,
July 15, 1978 

"Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth! They shall reap the fruits of their labor. The crops shall rot! Mankind shall feel a sword upon his world.
     "The Eternal Father has endured your apostasy, your arrogance, your heresy much too long! As an errant and ungrateful generation given to sin and abominations of the flesh, you shall be forced to your knees by trial.” - St. Michael,
July 15, 1975 

"O My children, My heart is torn that you will not turn about and get down to your knees. Throughout your world now there will be great trials set upon mankind: upheavals of nature, discord in governments, nations at war, fire raining from the sky! My children, you ask for peace, but you are traveling to your own destruction as you build up armaments to kill your brothers and maim!” - Our Lady, July 15, 1977 

"Mothers, and fathers too, have gone astray in these dark days. Materialism has replaced spiritualism, and that is why the many catastrophes are being allowed upon your earth. There will be more floods with death, more volcano eruptions with death, more accidents that are not accidents, until you will surely come to your senses and realize that there is a higher power working at this time to bring you to your knees.” - Our Lady, June 18, 1986 

"O My children, Rome is in great danger. There is much deceit throughout the hierarchy. It will be cardinal against cardinal and bishop against bishop, for satan has set himself in their ranks.
     "Prayer is the most powerful force now given in your world to stop the advance of 666. My children, if I could open to you a scene in small measure of the coming Chastisement, I would not have to, as your Mother, beg you to listen and act upon My counsel; you would go to your knees and make your way to My Son in pleading.” - Our Lady,
May 28, 1977 

"There will be many manifestations throughout the world. There will be many chosen as My voice-box. Before the final Chastisement each man will have had and made the choice, had the opportunity to choose between My Son and satan. The forces of evil are gathering fast for the final battle. Satan knows that his time is short.
     "Prayer, atonement, and sacrifice: is this too much to ask of you in the face of the reality of what lies ahead for your country and the world? Shall you be forced to fast and starve your bodies? Shall you be forced to your knees with disaster?
     "I have long been a guardian and Patroness* of your country. It has prospered and become a symbol to the world. However, now it has blackened the cross, and it has made itself up as a center for the worship of man and worldly treasures. The example of those in authority has been debased. The example of many in authority has set many onto the road to hell. Nothing has gone by unnoticed by the Father.” - Our Lady,
August 14, 1973 

*In 1846, eight years before Pope Pius IX proclaimed the dogma of the Immaculate Conception, the Sixth Council of Baltimore formally chose the Blessed Virgin Mary conceived without sin as the Patroness of the United States.

"My child, the earthquakes will increase now. There will be one in New York. Now, My child, I tell you this to prepare. You are allowed, My child, to experience all that mankind can suffer. How well you listened to Us when We told you to place on your shelves cans of food, jars of water, blankets. You found it very cold, My child, without heat and without light, and without any form of recreation other than to pray. And that was God's way of letting the world know that they will be on their knees; and one of these days they will be praying, for many the first time in many years. But why, My children, must We allow all these disasters to happen to you, and have to bring you to your knees in prayer? Can you not listen, and can you not seek for the truth, all who call themselves atheists, and those who have half-hearted interest in religion at all? They call it a thing of the past. It is not a thing of the past, but it is a means for your salvation. Accept it and you will be saved; reject it and you will be lost.” - Jesus, October 5, 1985 

"I shall not give you a long discourse on your offenses, but I give you fair warning now that the sand is about to pass through the hourglass, and your time is running out! Amen! Amen! I say to you, as your God: penance, atonement, and sacrifice now! Cleanse your souls by penance, or you shall be forced to your knees to do penance!
     "The Eternal Father shall chastise those He loves. Shall you be counted among the sheep or the goats, bishops? Strip yourselves of your pride and your arrogance! For pride is a more formidable barrier against sanctity than even outright licentiousness! Pride comes before the fall, and all that is rotten shall fall!
     "The kernels that survive in a storm often fall on rocks and don't bloom and bring forth and bear fruit. But now, as I look upon My House, My Church upon earth, I find you have opened the doors to thieves and robbers. All manner of heresy abounds now in the hearts of man. You have turned from your God, and you are forming false gods of worship based on a humanistic way of life.” - Jesus,
October 2, 1979 

“Many are not listening now, My child, as many rejected My words years ago.
     "Do not wait, My children, until you are forced to your knees. Come to Us now, for your reward will be in far greater abundance, filled with graces, graces far beyond what your human mind could comprehend.
     "Measure for measure will be given unto you for your works and your actions to your brothers and the safeguarding of your immortal soul and the souls entrusted to your care. And if you have the mercy of heart and the goodness of spirit, you will share this light with others.
     "Light your candles, My children, with Me. Search with Me through the darkness. Bring the Message from Heaven to the world. These candles, the lights of wisdom and love, shall be lit throughout the world. Every country shall have the knowledge of the truth. The Gospel, the words of the Father, shall go throughout the world before you receive the judgment.” - Our Lady,
September 28, 1974 

"Soon your world will face a complete change. Many will be taken out of the world. Your country and the world will be cleansed by the Father. When this cleansing is complete in stages, those who remain will set up the Kingdom with My Son. You have hastened, with your sinfulness, a great disaster to come.
     "I ask you now, as Queen of Heaven and guardian of your country and the world, to keep and promote a constant vigilance of prayer. Only in this manner can you avert what is fast coming upon you. O My children, if you could see what is there, beyond your celestial heavens, heading fast upon you, you would fall to your knees." - Our Lady,
September 7, 1973 

“All honor must be given to My Son in the Eucharist. Man must kneel. My Son’s House is the House of God and a house of prayer, and it must not be turned into a meeting hall.” - Our Lady, July 25, 1979 

"Why must you insult My Son? Can you not bend your knees? Is He not your King?" - Our Lady, November 21, 1970

"I have asked you to get down on your knees. Clergy in My Son's House, His Church, restore the altar railings, that man may be on his knees. For many shall crawl on their knees in desperation seeking to flee, but nowhere shall they escape the flames. Restore My Son's Church while there is time. Return the railings! Have the people make atonement upon their knees to their God!" - Our Lady, May 30, 1981




The 1980 instruction approved by Pope John Paul II, Inaestimabile Donum, states:  

"When the faithful communicate kneeling, no other sign of reverence towards the Blessed Sacrament is required, since kneeling itself is a sign of adoration." (#11) 

On October 25, 2001 Cardinal Medina Estévez (former Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments) admonished the American bishops to ". . . protect those faithful who will inevitably be led by their own sensibilities to kneel, from imprudent action by priests, deacons, or lay ministers in particular, or from being refused Holy Communion for such a reason. . ."

On February 25, 2003, the Congregation for Divine Worship gave this reply to Jane Elliot:

This Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments has received your letter dated 9 December 2002, related to the application of the norms approved by the Conference of Bishops of the United States of America, with the subsequent recognitio of this Congregation, as regards the question of the posture for receiving Holy Communion.

As the authority by virtue of whose recognitio the norm in question has attained the force of law, this Dicastery is competent to specify the manner in which the norm is to be understood for the sake of a proper application. Having received more than a few letters regarding this matter from different locations in the United States of America, the Congregation wishes to ensure that its position on the matter is clear.

To this end, it is perhaps useful to respond to your inquiry by repeating the content of a letter that the Congregation recently addressed to a Bishop in the United States of America from whose Diocese a number of pertinent letters had been received. The letter states: "... while this Congregation gave the recognitio to the norm desired by the Bishops’ Conference of your country that people stand for Holy Communion, this was done on the condition that communicants who choose to kneel are not to be denied Holy Communion on these grounds. Indeed, the faithful should not be imposed upon nor accused of disobedience and of acting illicitly when they kneel to receive Holy Communion".

This Dicastery hopes that the citation given here will provide an adequate answer to your letter. At the same time, please be assured that the Congregation remains ready to be of assistance if you should need to contact it again.

With every prayerful good wish, I am

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Mons. Mario Marini Undersecretary
