The cross is the most common symbol of Christianity today. The Christian cross is a sacred emblem of the Christian faith. The religious crosses are a symbol of redemption, signifying Christs death on the holy cross. Christians believe that Jesus Crucifixion played a central role in redeeming humanity from its sins, and they regard the holy cross as a sign of redemption. The Christian cross has had an enduring part in the profession of the Christian faith.
Religious crosses have a number of uses in Christian worship. A Christian cross on a staff is carried in many processions. During some ceremonies, members of the clergy or worshipers trace the shape of a cross with a hand or certain fingers. Holy crosses were put up to mark the graves of heroes, kings, and bishops during the Middle Ages. Often religious crosses were set up in market places. People preached beneath religious crosses. Even today churches are often built with their floor plan in the shape of a cross picture. Select this link to view our Unusual Gifts For Mom.
Man has been using candles since 3000 B.C. The ancients used them to prolong the day. Candles became a symbol of expressing joy. The Romans exchanged glowing tapers as expressions of goodwill and affection. The use of candles for Christmas celebrations was absorbed into the symbol of Jesus as the light of the World, and as a symbol of everlasting life. The tradition of putting candles in the windows comes from Ireland. When Christianity was suppressed in Ireland, the priest had to travel secretly, through the night, to visit his parishioners. Irish Christians left their doors unlocked and candles in the windows to show the priests where there was a friendly place to stay and to guide them through the dark night. When the English authorities questioned the people, they explained that the candles were for Mary and Joseph. Check out our entire selection of Battery Candles.
