The Sign of the Cross is a Baby Step to God
A genuinely made Sign of the Cross “makes all hell tremble.”
— St. John Vianney. You may be too busy to go to Mass or to Confession. You may not have enough time to say the Rosary. But what is your excuse for not making a meaningful Sign of the Cross? You make a Sign of the Cross meaningful by contemplating his bloody wounds to which you point with each gesture of the Sign of the Cross - to the bloody wounds in his head, his feet, his right arm, his left arm and his side. His bloody wounds are the narrow gate through which we squeeze our contemplation of God to acquire knowledge of him. The Sign of the Cross is a miniature of the Autobiography of God.
