We are in the midst of Great Lent season. This Lent is also known as '50 days Lent'. The first 40 days symbolize the 40 days fasting of Jesus Christ in the wilderness. During the next 10 days, the believers identify with the passion, crucifixion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Cross is the central theme of this season. Cross has a central place in Christian worship. It symbolizes the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In our Church, the custom is to place at least a simple, wooden cross on the Thronos. This is because our center of hope is not the Christ who suffers on the cross but the Christ who overcomes death and resurrects Himself, Cross is a symbol of suffering and victory. Cross without an image represents the resurrected Christ. When we make a sign of a cross, it means we are conscious of the presence of Jesus who took life as a man and died on the cross. It also means that we remember Jesus' ministry for the salvation of humankind. It also symbolizes the advent on earth of God who brings us to the right place from the wrong place we had chosen ourselves.
