I have a question about the Sign of the Cross the priest makes with the chalices, at the end of the Great Entrance. When this is done, should the people in the congregation 1) make the Sign of the Cross 2) bow 3) both? Any of them? None?
Thank you for any help.
And the only correct answer.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
