    1. That’s a good question. Not really sure. This is the way the devotion was taught to me. I’ve seen it in practice at some religious communities I have visited too.

      1. Thanks for the reply! I learned to bow when I learned the Angelus, so I was very confused when I saw everyone genuflecting in another community years later. I had a similar experience with “genuflecting on both knees” (which I don’t think is a thing) during exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.
