The cross and the anti-cross

March 27, 2019

Scripture never speaks of reconciliation except through the death of Christ. We are saved, in other words, by the cross and Resurrection. It follows that the anti-cross is the sign of the demonic. It is interesting to discover how much the crucifix has been displaced or removed in schools in the last few years. I was in a retreat house giving a retreat. There were about 1,20 people there this particular night. I looked around for a crucifix. There was none. Upon enquiring, I found that there had not been a crucifix in that retreat house in the last seven years.
