Is there a proper and improper way to genuflect? I go down, touch my right knee to the ground, and come right back up. I also usually make the sign of the cross while doing it, though it’s not a “part” of genuflecting. However, some people i’ve noticed, in the church I attend, will go down on one knee and stay there for like five seconds, or even longer. Some people will go down on two knees and stay there for a while also. I just notice it when they enter the pew. Is this good? Not good? does it matter? Also, some, a lot in my parish, although it has kneelers, choose not to use them. Like during Mass and whenever they’re kneeling in the church. Is this good? not good? does it matter? I’m just curious what others think about this. It makes me wonder sometimes.
