"Do not neglect prostration. It provides an image of man's fall into sin and expresses the confession of our sinfulness. Getting up, on the other hand, signifies repentance and the promise to lead a life of virtue. Let each prostration be accompanied by a noetic invocation of Christ, so that by falling before the Lord in soul and body you may gain the grace of the God of souls and bodies."
Theoliptos, Metropolitan of Philadelphia.
"Honor your father by word and deed, that his blessing may come upon you." Sirach 3:8
