I am not sure if this is the proper forum for this question, but here goes.
One of the books given to us RCIA Candidates was OUTLINES OF THE CATHOLIC FAITH, published by The Leaflet Missal Company, © 2000
After giving instructions on how to do the one knee genuflection, they add this sentence: “In genuflecting with both knees, bend the right knee first and then the left; thereupon make a medium bow of the body and rise.”
I’ve never seen anyone do the two-knee version. I do the one-knee version, although a bit slowly due to arthritis. Has anyone seen somebody do the two-knee version, or do it themselves? Is this something special for rare occasions or has it gone out of practice? Would it be considered grandstannding to do the two knee version when everyone else is doing the one-knee version?
