METANYIA - Prostration.
There are three different reasons why we prostrate:-
➕ for worship; when we enter the church and prostrate before the Holy Altar.
➕ for respect; in the presence of a Pope or bishop, we prostrate before them.
➕ Repentance, interior sorrow for sin. It also means the action by which such sorrow is expressed,
usually a prostration, or 'metanyia'
