Sign

A Woman Makes the Sign of the Cross – It is a prayer, it is our faith

As we are writing this, we are also watching C-SPAN coverage of the Supreme Court Great Hall where Justice Scalia is lying in state. As people pass by the coffin, one thing brings the greatest sadness along with the greatest hope. Many stop, face the coffin, and make the sign of the cross. As Catholics, we share this sign in life and we share this sign in times of death. We know that life in Christ is eternal and this sign, this Cross we remember, made eternal life in Christ possible.

This morning Fr. Fasano, who has been a close friend of the Scalia family, told us at Mass that he is to con-celebrate at Justice Scalia’s funeral Mass tomorrow. This can be a cold and harsh world filled with sin, but when there are Catholic priests like Fr. Fasano and Catholic lay people like Justice Scalia, who really believe and act on their beliefs, there is hope for a better world.

Next week, our post will be delayed by a day or two.
