Can anybody suggest some good prayers to say over my 4-month-old twins and night and in the morning? I’m a new Catholic, currently in RCIA. I remember when I was very young, my babysitter’s husband would make the sign of the Cross over each of their 5 kids every morning with a short blessing as they walked out the door for school. They would tell me that their dad would also pray over each of them every night before they went to bed. I liked the idea then, and I love it now, as a new Catholic and father.
A technical question: should I be making the sign of the Cross over them when I pray over them?
Thanks for all your help.
