Anointing and the Cross

The passage begins with the ritual of priestly ordination of Aaron and his sons. The blood of the ram is applied to the ear, thumb, and toe, organs of receptivity and action. The anointing reminded the priests to hear only the Word of God, to do only what the Lord wants, to go only where the Lord leads.

From the earliest times in the church, symbolic gestures came to be incorporated into the prayer of Christians, such as making the sign of the cross. There developed a variation by making three crosses with the thumb on the forehead, the lips and chest. “Christ in my mind, in my mouth and in my heart.”

The origin of morning and evening prayer is outlined from 29:38. God longs to dwell with you always.

Exodus 29:19—30:10

that are read each year beginning with autumn.
