JEN-yuh-flekt’

I thought todays Word of the Day from Dictionary.com was worth making note of for future reference. It’s an interesting one!

[b]genuflect[/b] JEN-yuh-flekt, intransitive verb:
1. To bend the knee or touch one knee to the ground, as in worship.
2. To be servilely respectful or obedient; to grovel.

I think it ties obedience and worship together quite nicely. Ponder on it for a while.

  1. It’s the thing Catholics do when they enter the church and kneel and cross themselves. Kinda reminds me of a song by Tom Lehrer called the [url=http://members.aol.com/quentncree/lehrer/vatican.htm]Vatican Rag.[/url]

  2. I just feel really lonely, and I dont feel like I should. Hmm. Interesting thoughts. I didn’t realise I felt that way.

We shall win.

"The decree has gone forth that the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ and that He shall reign whose right it is from the River to the ends of the earth. We shall win. It is only a question of time. I believe that this Movement shall inaugurate the final conquest of our Lord Jesus Christ."
- General Catherine Booth
