  1. 14) Genuflecting towards the altar when the tabernacle is located elsewhere—– can be wrong…..In the General Instruction on the Roman Missal, which gives us our directions for Mass, it
    stipulates that genuflections to the tabernacle ought not to take place during Mass. The
    presence of the tabernacle is de-emphasized, and instead, our primary focus should be on the
    altar. It is to the altar that we bow.
