On Making the Sign of the Cross

I found the following, helpful quote at Christ is in Our Midst (always a great resource for seeing some wonderful, Orthodox art and for reading challenging words):

Make the sign of the Cross assiduously:  it is a wordless prayer. In a brief moment, independent of sluggish words, it gives expression to your will to share Christ’s life and crucify your flesh, and willingly, without grumbling, to receive all that the Holy Trinity sends.

from The Way of the Ascetics by Tito Colliander
