Why do Catholics genuflect?
BY The Editors

As the Catechism of the Catholic Church states: “In the liturgy of the Mass, we express our faith in the real presence of Christ under the species of bread and wine by, among other ways, genuflecting or bowing deeply as a sign of adoration of the Lord” (1378).
Have you always wondered about some aspect of the faith? Or maybe you’d like to know some trivia about Pope Benedict. If you do, email us your question at email@example.com and look for the answer in an upcoming issue.
