Also, not trying to be rude, but to think that the Bishop hasn't gotten out much indicates you probably don't know him well. He isn't who he is for all these decades because of secondhand accounts coming to him as he hides out in his office. He's been on the front lines since before many of us were born and has seen and experienced more than many of us combined. Agree or disagree with him, it has nothing to do with him not getting out.
I don't think you're being rude at all. It was in an NO sermon that I attended two days ago, where the priest said that we should not be afraid to show our faith in a public manner - such as genuflecting when we say our before and after meal prayers - even in a restaurant. I apologise if I wasn't clear about that. An SSPX priest told me the same thing once. I almost always say at least a before meal prayer at restaurants - with the usual genuflection. No one has ever said that they were bothered by this. If others in the restaurant are offended by this, then that 's too bad, but I'm not going to stop because of it. We should not be afraid to show that we are Catholics.

Thank you.  :)

Interesting. I've never heard of genuflecting for grace and you've heard it from two different priests! We have genuflected for the Angelus though, said with grace, but not in public. In public, the Sign of the Cross is our outward sign.

Come to think of it,  we don't even genuflect for the Angelus in private anymore. I couldn't say why though. We've been exposed to different customs from different places and I often can't remember who does what and why.   

Now that you mention it, even when I attended an SSPX chapel, I thought it was odd that I was the only one who genuflected and said my meal prayers at the potlucks. Maybe it's not a usual thing for Catholics to do. But the catechism that the SSPX priest gave me says that we are to pray before and after meals, so I thought that most Catholics do this - but maybe not. I've always felt that the SSPX priest who baptized me is unusually pious and devout!
