On the Sign of the Cross

Let us then not be ashamed to confess the Crucified. Let the cross be as our seal, boldly made with our fingers upon our brow an all occasions; over the bread we eat, over the cups we drink; in our comings and in our goings; before sleep; on lying down and rising up; when we are on our way, and when we are still. It is a powerful safeguard; it is without price, for the sake of the poor; without toil, because of the sick; for it is a grace from God, a badge of the faithful, and a terror to the devils; for “he displayed them openly, leading them away in triumph by force of it.” For when they see the Cross, they are reminded of the Crucified; they fear him who has “smashed the heads of the dragons.” Despise not the seal as a free gift, but rather for this reason honor your benefactor all the more.
