The Sign of the Cross

March 6, 2012 by Principal of HIS

Have you ever wondered why Catholics make the Sign of the Cross? Is it only because that is the way we begin our prayers?  Is it just a movement or gesture to begin to say something to God?  Does it mean anything?  The answer is found in its mystery. This simple, yet holy sign, encompasses the meaning of our faith. We say, “In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen”. Who is it that we call upon?  It is God, the Holy Trinity. The action we perform is the sign of our salvation – the Holy Cross! Let us pray this holy sign with great reverence and humility.
