The Final Genuflection
At a Low Mass the " Leonine Prayers " are said: these were ordered by Pope Leo XIII in 1884 and Pius XI in 1934 for the conversion of Russia. In Churches in England a Prayer for the Queen may be said after High Mass on a Sunday.
At the end of a sung Mass the Priest and servers gather below the altar step and genuflect to the Blessed Sacrament.
