The priest, taking the candlestick with its candle (trikiri, if Bishop) and the censer in both hands, facing east toward the Holy Table, and making the Sign of the Cross, says in a loud voice:
Priest: Wisdom! Let us attend!
Then having turned to the west — toward the people — he exclaims:
Priest: The Light of Christ illumineth all!
At this time the people make a full prostration to the ground.
