What is the meaning of the Sign of the Cross? 

Through the Sign of the Cross we place ourselves under the protection of the Triune God.

At the beginning of the day, at the beginning of a prayer, but also at the beginning of important undertakings, a Christian makes the Sign of the Cross over himself and thus starts his business “in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”. We are surrounded on all sides by the Triune God; calling upon him by name sanctifies the things we set out to do; it obtains blessings for us and strengthens us in difficulties and temptations.  (YOUCAT questions 359-360)
