Setiap Lutut harus bertelut

Catatan: penekanan kalimat […] tambahan dari saya sendiri, bukan dari artikel asli.

Video diatas menunjukkan dua Fransiskan Kapusin yang membawa Tubuh Kristus tepat ditengah-tengah Preston, sebuah pasar di Inggris. Ketika seorang Fransiskan mengucapkan litani Kristus, Fransiskan yang lainnya memegang Kristus didalam Monstrans. Sang Biarawan yang berbicara menggunakan ampli dengan berulang-ulang mengucapkan, “Come and kneel before Him now,” [ terj. Datang dan berlututlah didepanNya sekarang] dan betapa sangat indah sekali melihat orang-orang yang sedang berbelanja, menghentikan kegiatan mereka untuk berlutut didepan Tuhan. Beberapa tertawa, dan yang lain berdiri dengan wajah yang kebingungan.

Video ini tepat sebelum Pesta Tubuh Kristus, sebuah Pesta dimanaa banyak Imam Paroki masih memimpin prosesi Ekaristi secara publik. Perlu sekali bagi kita untuk membawa Kristus kembali di jalan-jalan dan pasar dan tempat-tempat umum lainnya. [hmm..saya tidak melihat/ setidaknya pernah mendengar ada paroki di daerah tertentu pernah melakukan ini, jika pernah ada ini sangat menggembirakan, kontak kami dan akan kami tulis disini]
Inilah yang dikatakan biarawan Fransiskan tersebut di dalam video:

    Dear Romo,…Romo dalam Video itu saya melihat, seorang Pastur yang membawa Hosti itu justru terlihat kurang hormat kepada Tubuh Kristus, terlihat dari caranya membawa, dan apakah diperbolehkan membawa Tubuh Kristus disembarang tempat ? setahu saya tidak boleh sembarangan. Mohon koreksi saya jika salah. Terima kasih Romo. GBU.

    1. Shalom Yohanes 777,

      Kami adalah awam, bukan imam. Saya tidak melihat adanya cara membawa yang kurang hormat dari imam tersebut, bisa tolong tunjukkan bagian mana yang menurut kamu tidak hormat? Btw apa yang dilakukan imam tersebut bukan membawa hosti di sembarang tempat. Di Eropa, dulu sekali memang ada suatu budaya dimana prosesi Sakramen Maha Kudus dilakukan di jalan-jalan, toh Kehadiran Kristus memang harus dinyatakan secara publik, dan tidak ada yang salah dengan ini. Semoga menjawab pertanyaanmu.

      Salam,
      Cornelius.

        Dear Cornelius,.. Ooo, sebab saya baru pertama kali ini mengetahui hal itu yg berlaku di eropa pada jaman dulu, saya melihat terasa kurang hormat saat pertama kali Pastur itu datang dan menaruh tas yg berisi tubuh Kristus ditanah dan saat mengeluarkannya terlihat sedemikian rupa. Tapi itu mungkin perasaan saya saja,, :) apakah di eropa hal itu masih berlaku pada saat sekarang ? Terima Kasih Pak Cornerlius.

      2. Setahu saya masih ada (saya lupa persisnya di negara mana), namun di Amerika hal tersebut masih dilakukan. Bisa dilihat di link berikut : http://dioceseofvenice.org/eucharistic-processions-give-public-witness-to-faith/

        dan ini di Notre Dame :
