Why We Make the Sign of the Cross

As Catholics, we sign ourselves with the sign of the cross most often whenever we begin to pray. Sometimes we do it without much attention. Maybe we either never knew, or have forgotten, the biblical and deep meaning of this Catholic practise. In this homily, preached on October 16th, 2011 for the Twenty-ninth Sunday Throughout the Year, I call my parishioners to enter more deeply into this practise which should be a part of our daily life. This homily is also part of our parish’s preparation for the introduction of the new English translation of the Latin Mass.
