Sign of the Cross

by Steve Ray on April 13, 2009

signofthecrossThis study was originally a part of a letter written to an “ecumenically-sensitive” Catholic who was part of a group that abandoned certain Catholic distinctives (such as crossing themselves, displaying the crucifix, venerating the Blessed Virgin, etc.) in an effort to “not offend the Protestant brethren”.

The end result was an emasculated Catholicism, a group of confused Catholics, and unsympathetic Protestants. Following is a short study on the Sign of the Cross which goes into depth on the practice and teaching of the Early Church and the Fathers.

Cheers,
