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'.
