We face the east when we pray, It is because our church believes that the Second Coming of our Lord will be from the East. St. Mathew: 24:27 , for as lighting that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
We make the sign of the cross by touching the forehead first, then to chest to remember that our Lord came down from heaven to earth for our salvation and then moving from left shoulder to the right shoulder to remember that we children of the left by our sins are turned to the children of the right by the death of our Saviour on the cross. We make the sign with the thumb and the first two fingers of the right hand joined together. We should bow our body and to make the sign whenever we say Crucified for us and also at the time of remembrance of the death of our Lord in the Nicene Creed.
