The Sign of the Cross, Icons, and Tradition in the Orthodox Church

What are icons and why do Orthodox Christians kiss them? Icons are like family photos. Just like a deployed soldier may kiss a photo of his wife, we kiss icons of Saints who have fallen asleep in Christ.

Perhaps you are also wondering what the sign of the cross means. Check out this video where Frederica explains how Orthodox Christians make the sign of the cross, what it means, and how she began to appreciate the Tradition of the Orthodox Church.

This video is part of an ongoing series entitled Welcome to the Orthodox Church produced the Theoria Youtube Channel .
