I have noticed that Catholics choose to display crucifixes and Protestants choose just a cross. This post is not an attack on Catholics, but just an observation between the two. My take is that the cross is used because died and rose again. As Jesus said “it is finished”. I am not an expert on Catholicism, so I am unsure why they prefer the image of Jesus’ body on the cross. Is it merely one paying more attention to His resurrection and the other emphasizing His death? Does anyone know? Would like to share what they prefer? Or does it matter at all?
