What should our disposition be when the priest holds up the host at Mass? … Bow our heads? Look at it? I’m never sure. After the priest prays the words of consecration at Mass (“Take this, all of you, and eat of it, for this is my Body, which will be given up for you”) he holds up, or elevates, the Host. As far as physical disposition goes, either bowing your head or looking at it would be fine, whichever you choose is up to you. It might even change from Mass to Mass. Your interior disposition – the disposition of your mind and heart – is properly one of thanksgiving, adoration, and awe since what you are seeing is no longer bread, not a mere symbol but Christ Himself. Of course, in our weakness it happens that we might believe this with our heads but not feel it in our hearts. There could be many reasons for this. On the negative side it could be distractions from outside, lack of focus, lack of preparation before Mass, personal sin, and so on. On the positive side it could be that God is teaching you to rely of your faith rather on than your emotions in your relationship with him. In any case, we respond to God with a disposition of faith.
