S Francesco d'Assisi: "I bear the marks of Jesus on my body"

... May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ."
-- Gal 6:14-18
The sign of the cross, on the threshold of the celebration, marks with the imprint of Christ the one who is going to belong to him and signifies the grace of the redemption Christ won for us by his cross.

-- CCC 1235
