The Discovery of the True Cross

Sign of the Cross
Dear John and Kirk,

I certainly do not think you are wrong John, I have yet to come across any Church Father who didn't recommend making the sign of the cross at nearly every opportunity.

Indeed the early martyrs would, I understand, often stand with arms outstretched in the Colisseum so that as they were attacked by wild beasts, burnt alive etc and died they could not fail but imitate Our Lord.

In Christ,
