Et incarnatus est
Today, Holy Mother Church commemorates the Feast of the Annunciation of the Lord. This year the feast got bumped because it fell on a Sunday, which, as a memorial of the Resurrection, takes precedence.
The rubrics specify that all genuflect at the 'et incarnatus est', one of the 2 times in the year when the obligatory pre-Pauline Missal genuflection is mandated, the other being Christmas. So, how was it done in your parish? Did you all genuflect? Do drop me a comment and let me know.
I attended Mass at the seminary Chapel which was bereft of priests as the Penitential Service was taking place at the same time at the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit. No genuflection =(
