Wall Crucifix/Cross & Standing Crosses

It has long been a tradition of Catholic families to hang crucifixes throughout their homes, or to even have a crucifix embedded into the foundation of the house. Some merely hang the crucifix on the walls of their home as a reminder of Christ’s redemptive sacrifice, but beyond this, it is also a sacramental, used in devotion to Our Lord and as a guard against evil. The Vatican’s exorcist, Gabriele Amorth, encouraged the faithful to keep a crucifix in every room.
