ORTHODOX CHURCH ETIQUETTE: When we address Deacons or Priests, we should use the title “Father.” Bishops, we should address them as “Your Grace.” Though all Bishops (including Patriarchs) are equal in the Orthodox Church, they do have different administrative duties and honors that accrue to their rank in this sense. Thus, “Your Eminence” is the proper title for Archbishops and Metropolitans. When we approach an Orthodox Presbyter or Bishop (but not a Deacon), we should make a bow, place our right hand over the left (palms upward), and say: “Bless, Father” or “Bless, Your Grace,” or “Bless, Your Eminence.” The Priest or Bishop then answers, “May the Lord bless you,” blesses us with the Sign of the Cross, and places his right hand in our hands. We kiss then his hand. We should understand that when the Priest or Bishop blesses us, he forms his fingers to represent the Christogram “ICXC” a traditional abbreviation of the Greek words for “Jesus Christ”. Thus, their blessing is in the Name of Christ, as he emphasizes in his response to the believer’s request for a blessing. We should also note that the reason that a layperson kisses the hand of a Priest or Bishop is to show respect to his Apostolic office. More importantly, however, since both hold the Holy Mysteries in their hands during the Divine Liturgy, we show respect to the Holy Eucharist when we kiss their hands. In fact, Saint John Chrysostom once said that if one were to meet an Orthodox Priest walking along, they should greet the Priest and kiss his hand since that hand has touched the Body and Blood of our Lord. For this latter reason, we do not normally kiss the hand of a Deacon. While a Deacon in the Orthodox Church holds the first level of the Priesthood (Deacon, Presbyter, Bishop), his service does not entail blessing and touching the Mysteries. When we take leave of a Priest or Bishop, we should again ask for a blessing, just as we did when we first greeted him. “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.” (Mt. 11:15)
