I'd like to say "Welcome home!" but I'm not exactly sure whether it would be appropriate for an EO to say something like that. Anyway, best of luck and many years!

The sideways thing? I honestly don't know why that posted like that. Photobucket uploaded it sideways, then I posted here sideways. Of course the picture itself is a little twisted.  :)

They mean "saved" and "anointed".

Those greetings are part of the ceremony of Chrismation of our Church and were said to you after you were anointed with muron in 13 places of your body.

They say "I/we love you".
It's called ILY sign.

Quote
ILY sign combines the letters 'I', 'L', and 'Y' from American Sign Language by extending the thumb, index finger, and little finger while the middle and ring finger touch the palm. It is an informal expression of love.
