Sign of the Cross
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Making the sign of the Cross is a feature of worship throughout Christendom, although its form varies from East to West. It can be made over other people and objects, or self-administered. In the Western Church, including the Anglican Catholic Church, it is usually made with the right hand.
You begin by:
touching the forehead,
bringing the hand down to the "heart",
touching the left shoulder and then bringing the hand across the chest to the right shoulder. In one fluid action you will trace the sign of the Cross upon yourself.
