He must increase and I must decrease

A famous English Catholic priest was once asked:

“When we make the sign of the Cross what are we saying?”

He answered: the first two gestures make the letter


The next gestures cross it out.

In other words – we want to be humble – crossed out – unimportant.

"It is Christ who must increase in our life. We must decrease."
