“They Have Been Crucified With Christ”

After praying with an Orthodox sister, Irina Ratushinskaya [who survived Communist prison], … I said my “Amen” and then watched her make the sign of the Cross with such depth of feeling that I had a powerful urge to make the sign myself. I resisted – for fear it might be a betrayal of my Baptist tradition. How foolish I felt when I later discovered that believers since the very beginning and through the centuries have made the sign of the Cross, signifying that they have been crucified with Christ.
