In the name of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit.

Though many traditions vary, this prayer is usually recited with the Sign of the Cross gesture, which is typically done by bringing the thumb, index and middle finger together (representing the trinity) and touching the forehead while saying, "In the name of the Father," then touching the lower chest while saying, "and of the Son," then touching the shoulder (left first in western traditions, right first in eastern traditions) while saying, "and of the Holy" then crossing to the other shoulder saying, "Spirit." And finally touching the lips with a kiss, before saying, "Amen."
