You should have tripped him on the way out.
I go,to St Joseph in Bronxville light some candles and kneel,or sit in a pew....during the workweek every two weeks
That is the most masculine thing, for a gentleman to kneel in front of and honor Our Lady. It is like a knight in front of his queen or a son being good to his mother. Find a man like this and he is a prize.
Regarding this devotion to Our Lady, in modern terminology, we do not "worship" the saints, though in the very ancient past, the term "worship", I think, was used to describe both the honor given to the saints and that given to our Lord alone.
That being said, while I am sure this man does not want attention drawn to him, kudos to him.
