Did you know. . .
The cross is among the oldest and most universal symbols. Often symbolic of the four astrological elements of earth, water, fire, and air, a cross was also perceived as the cosmic axis from which radiated the spatial dimensions of height, length, width, and breadth, as well as the directions of north, east, south, and west.
In its simplicity of form, the cross has been used both as a religious symbol and as an ornament, from the beginning of man's civilization. Various objects, dating from periods long before and to the Christian era, have been found, marked with crosses of different designs, in almost every part of the old world.
The erect pole and crossbar used to crucify Jesus Christ became the principal symbol of Christianity. A cross stood for both the actual Crucifixion and the concept of the Christian church.
Second century Christians began to make the sign of the cross as a gesture of identification, blessing, and warding off of evil. In the Roman church, the sign of the cross was made from left to right and in Eastern Orthodox churches from right to left.
A Processional Cross is a portable crucifix, mounted on a staff, which is used in liturgical processions at the head of the vested members of the clergy.
As Christians are followers of Christ, hence in procession the crucifix is carried first, with the figure turned in the direction in which the procession is moving.
