Happy Easter, everyone!
(Moderators, If I’m posting this in the wrong area on the forums, feel free to move it)
I have 2 questions.
My first question is, before the Eucharist, when the priest is talking about when Jesus takes the bread and gives it to the disciples, as well as when Jesus gives the cup to the disciples, I noticed that after the priest says the part, “Do this in memory of me” people during mass will bow their head, and say a short prayer. What pray is that?? I’m kinda embarrassed to ask because I should probably know that, but I honestly don’t know what pray they are saying, and I want to know.
My other question is regarding The Sign of the Cross. I for sure know how to make The Sign of the Cross, but I notice that some look like they do it multiple times in a row, or they make the sign, but also do it on their lips and heart at the same time? (I’m sorry if that doesn’t make sense, but I don’t know how else to describe it).
I’m just curious if I’m missing something, or has anyone else seen that too? I just want to know what that means, and if I’m supposed to do that too.
Thanks for the help!
