Arinze, head of Vatican Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments, urges reverence, genuflections, centrally located tabernacles

Speaking in Westminster Cathedral on April 1, Nigerian Cardinal Francis Arinze called on priests to restore tabernacles to central positions in churches and for Catholics to rediscover the tradition of reverent genuflection in the presence of the Eucharist.

He entitled his talk, "The Eucharistic Mystery Calls For Our Response".
