Orthodox Sign of the Cross and prayer kill germs, transmute water?

Years of Russian research.

Yes, recently!

Grain of salt? Or “me of little faith”?!!!

(This is actually a year old. It made an impression then, but re-encountering it three times in the last few days, I took the hint to post it! 🙂

Where exactly is the middle of the solarplexus?

Just to be clearer, I believe when they talk about making the Sign of the Cross “over” food, they mean on yourself when about to eat it, in particular when saying Grace, which includes the Lord’s Prayer. I don’t think they mean waving a blessing above or in front of it as a priest or Bishop does, or as we’re encouraged to do on our pillow and bed before sleep. ‘Crossing yourself,’ as we sometimes say in the West.
