Did You Know?


 
Did you know that the sign of the cross is a short but powerful prayer?
Make the sign of the cross anytime during the day.  Offer it up if you feel tempted, worried, scared, in danger, passing a church, in thanksgiving, or for a person in distress.
 
A sign in the form of a cross made by the Christian as a prayer honoring the Blessed Trinity, "in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."
 
(2157; cf. 786)  The Catechism of The Catholic Church

Amen to this. How privileged we are to be able to make the sign of His cross on our very own selves.

Great prayer and an excellent reminder of how simple it is to give honor to God in our lives.

I love the sign of the Cross and use it frequently throughout the day.

I wrote a post about it last year, where you can learn more about this powerful prayer if you care to:
