The Cross is the most important symbol of Christianity, which characterizes the Sacrifice of Christ to save mankind from sin. At the moment of the Crucifixion, Christ gives forgiveness to Christians and prays for them to his Father. This power finally unites the Church with the heavens. Since then, the Cross proclaims the victory of Christ throughout the universe.
Christians around the world honor the Cross as a symbol of salvation with the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross every year on September 14th.
