Dan, this is a good question.

1. This probably doesn't pertain, but the site that has me to this day humbled and chilled, was seeing my uncle (a priest) kneel and then lie prostrate before the altar when I was about twelve. I get chills everytime I witness that humble act repeated by other priests. I often have the wish to place myself in a similar posture of homage and obedience and humility before Our Lord.

2. A man who is considerate and kind, living the Gospel in his actions and manners.

3. As for butt-flopping, never did until a messed up knee made it almost impossible to kneel and then stand up to go to communion. I remain unflopped for as long as possible and at some parishes the kneelers are such that I can compensate for the knee, but not at my home parish. I do however cringe when I must flop because I as well don't like it.

I'm thinking "E = all of the above" to all the posts so far. I would add "guy with a rosary in hand and head bowed" and "guy who tears up during mass at any point"

Don't flop, just sit down. Far more respectful.

And anyone who has trouble genuflecting, with their right knee completely touching the floor, just make a profound bow. This is one that gets my goat, especially when you see young people with no physical problems barely bending their knee, making a sloppy sign of the cross.

When I went to WYD 2011, I noticed so many receiving the Lord on their tongues, on their knees. I saw young men at Lourdes walking over gravel and concrete on their knees, clutching rosaries.

I see the tongue thing a few times in my local parish, and while I'm sure most of those guys are either too young/old or probably taken, I am impressed and given hope for the future of our Church. Numbers may drop, but its quality not quanity that's important.

So, I'm wondering what things people of the opposite sex do that could be seen as religious that make you take a greater interest in that person. Take for example. I was at adoration last night and the chapel has chairs with fold down kneelers on the back of each chair. Well as you might imagine that means the front row is without kneelers, but they do have one standing kneeler with a padded arm rest on top and cushioned kneeler. Well, this young lady walks in to the front row and after kneeling in reverence before the Blessed Sacrament she got up and pushed the standing kneeler forward a bit with her foot and then proceeded to kneel down on the ground. Now granted the chapel is carpeted, but it's definitely a form of mortification to kneel on the ground rather than a cushioned kneeler. Well, needless to say, I was impressed and wanted to ask her out on a date right then and there, but looked at her closer and seen she looked a wee too young for me. So, what things to people of the opposite do that make you want to ask them out on a date or at least pique your interest in them?

There is nothing more beautiful and appealing than a woman who truly, down deep, LOVES God and lives her faith.

What I admire most is seeing men come to mass alone with their children. I've seen this more and more. I admire their will to show up alone with their children. I often wonder in the back of my mind, where are the women? Whether they are at work, or whatever, I think it's so admirable that men will come alone with their children. You know? smile That really says alot about the character of that man!
