Myth #25 Crosses, Crucifixes and Sarcramentals Oh My!

First off let me clarify the difference between a "Cross" and a "Crucifix". A Crucifix is a cross with Jesus on it and a cross is just that a cross.

Sacramentals are throughout the bible.

Matthew 9:20 Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak.

Matthew 14:36 and begged him to let the sick just touch the edge of his cloak, and all who touched him were healed.

Acts 19:11-12 - Paul's handkerchiefs healed the sick and those with unclean spirits. This is another example of physical things effecting physical and spiritual cures.

Acts 5:15 - Peter's shadow healed the sick. This proves that relics of the saints have supernatural healing power, and this belief has been a part of Catholic tradition for 2,000 years.

2 Kings 13:21 - Elisha's bones bring a man back to life. The saints' bones are often kept beneath the altars of Catholic churches and have brought about supernatural cures throughout the Christian age.

Numbers 21:9
Moses therefore made a brazen serpent, and set it up for a sign: which when they that were bitten looked upon, they were healed.
