Why Have Crosses and Crucifixes in the Home?

Posted on

It has been a long standing tradition to display religious goods such as crosses and crucifixes in the Christian or Catholic home. It is a representation of what the Lord Jesus Christ has done for us. It is a reminder that our freedom came with a hefty price and sacrifice, because nothing in life is free.

Reminder of Christ’s Redemptive Sacrifice

Hanging a crucifix in your home is a constant way to remind yourself that the Lord Jesus Christ died for your sins. If you have having a bad day, or are getting down on yourself, it is a good way to remind yourself that you were created in God’s image and that God has a unique plan for you and your life. It is a way to remember that you are in God’s graces and that everything will be alright.

Guard Against Evil

The St. Benedict’s Crucifix is known to be used to ward off evil spirits. It is meant to be hung above doorways, some even seal these crucifixes into the foundation of their houses. Any doorway in which the cross is hung above is a threshold that evil spirits cannot cross. It is intended to be a constant silent prayer asking for the guidance of Christ and aversion of the devil and any other lurking spirits.
