Every Christian honor and venerate the Holy Cross by which the compassionate Lord redeemed the world. Even non-Christians have a respect for the Cross. The Cross is adored specially by the faithful on the 'Good Friday' service throughout the world by most Christian denominations.
Apart from that, the universal Church has allotted a special feast day to honor the 'Holy Cross of the Lord' . It is on the 14th of September. It is to commemorate two historical events: the first is: the finding of the Life-giving Holy Cross on which the Lord died, in 326, and second is: its recovery from Persia in the year 628.
The Cross is a powerful weapon against demons and evil-spirits. When the Lord won the mankind with His Holy Cross, the satan was defeated and hence his dark forces fear the cross. Christians place crosses at their homes to drive away evil spirits and to get the unconditional powerful protection of the Lord.
