Before receiving Holy Communion, we are asked to make some preparatory act of reverence such as a bow. This should be made just before receiving Communion. General Instruction of the Roman Missal, No. 160 states: "When receiving Holy Communion, the communicant bows his or her head before the Sacrament as a gesture of reverence and receives the Body of the Lord from the minister. The consecrated host may be received either on the tongue or in the hand, at the discretion of each communicant. When Holy Communion is received under both kinds, the sign of reverence is also made before receiving the Precious Blood."
