Reverence for the tabernacle

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q:  If I enter a church, and the tabernacle is not behind the altar but to the side, should I reverence the altar or genuflect to the tabernacle or both?

A:  Upon entering a church, it’s appropriate to genuflect to the tabernacle before taking your place, especially if you are passing by it. Otherwise, it is sufficient to make a profound bow to the altar. Doing both is perfectly acceptable.
