Why do we genuflect and what does it mean?

Full Question

I’ve always wondered why we genuflect at Mass. What does it mean and when should we do it?

Answer

According to the General Instruction of the Roman Missal, “A genuflection, made by bending the right knee to the ground, signifies adoration, and therefore it is reserved for the Most Blessed Sacrament, as well as for the Holy Cross from the solemn adoration during the liturgical celebration on Good Friday until the beginning of the Easter Vigil” (274).

Why do some Protestant denominations not consider Catholics to be Christians, and how do you refute them?

Is there a difference between a presider and a celebrant?
