    A friend recently mentioned that he's heard the "Sign of the Cross" (familiar to Catholics Orthodox, and some other groups) referred to by others as the "Sign of the Trinity."

    Have any of you ever encountered this name? If so, in what sort of context?

    I've never heard it called that, but we do affirm the Trinity in making the sign of the cross, so I wouldn't object to that description.

    I've heard it called that, but not that often. I think most Christians (Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant and Evangelical) know it as the sign of the cross.

    Hi Mark,

    I'm not sure if I've heard it specifically called that though Ken Collins excellent Litugical site. http://www.kencollins.com/how-01.htm mentions the symbolism of the sign of the cross,

    The Discussion group I moderate discusses such things. at
    Liturgical Baptists Discussion Group

    One contributer stated in a thread,
    I am sure there are some here with more insights but that is just a few thoughts.


    Christ has risen from the dead,by death he has trampled on death,and to those in the graves given life!
