Quick Opinion Poll

Ok ... a quick opinion poll now.

How many people make the sign of the Cross before meals?

How about when you're in public, like in a restaurant?

How many people make the sign of the Cross when passing a church?

How many women wear a veil when in church?

Now read this wonderful post from Sue.


  1. I liked her post. Thanks. And yes, I pray in public and say grace and makes the sign of the cross. I am who I am.

  2. Always make sign of cross before meals. Always when in public. Make sign of cross when passing sometimes...I forget! I wear a veil if I am at the Extraordinary form of the mass. I don't wear a veil at the Ordinary form of the mass. I feel that "when in Rome, do as the Romans do." I don't like to draw attention to myself.

  3. Victor,

    Thank you for the link to my post!

    I always say grace before meals at home and in public, even though sometimes I do feel a little uncomfortable with people watching me.

    I don't make the sign of the cross when passing a church. Actually this is the first time I've heard of that custom. I was aware men used to raise their hats as a sign of respect. But I do whisper a few words of love to Jesus in the tabernacle as I go by.

    I don't wear a veil.

    Thanks for the opinion poll!

  4. Yes, make the sign of the cross, and pray grace before a meal, even in public in a restaurant when I am with my kids or kindred hearted believer. If I am in secular company, like coworkers, I do not pray aloud, only quietly.

    I do make the sign of the Cross when passing a church and pray as well.

    I never have worn a veil in church and probably never will.
