Priests

Two Orthodox priests in Balti, Moldova. The one on the right was finishing the sign of cross. The Orthodox touch their right shoulder first followed by their left, unlike the Roman Catholics who first touch their left shoulder. We were told that the Catholics crossed themselves from right to left too until the 15th or 16th century.
