The Holy Cross: This symbolises the pain and suffering Jesus went through to save us. It is a symbol for catholics and Christian's. This symbol is used throughout the year, especially Easter as it represents the time of Jesus' Crucifiction.
It Means Self-Denial
It Was A Thing of Shame and Suffering
The Roman method of crucifixion was one of the most exquisitely terrible methods of execution ever devised. People were crucified naked, hence the shame, and suffered excruciating pain as they had to struggle to pull themselves up to draw breath. There was also terrible thirst, especially if done in summer, and mental torture as the process was long and drawn out sometimes lasting for days before death.
The Preaching of the Cross as a thing of blessing brought great offense.
This is probably because it was such a horrible way to die.
It Is God's Method of Reconciling Man to God
This, for Christians, is its most wonderful meaning.
people believe that Jesus was hung across a Cross
that was when God proved that Jesus was really his son,
the cross was (when Jesus was alive) a way to torment, ridicule, and prosecute people, all in one.
