During the last two weeks before Catholic Easter, crucifixes and statues are covered inside many Roman Catholic Churches.
This religious ritual is called “Passiontide”. It is a name for the last two weeks of Lent, beginning on Passion Sunday and ending on Holy Saturday.
This what is recorded in Wikipedia:
In the Roman Catholic Church, all crucifixes and images may be covered in veils (usually violet, the colour of vestments in Lent) starting on Passion Sunday: “The practice of covering crosses and images in the church may be observed, if the episcopal conference decides.
The website New Advent has this explanation:
The crosses are veiled because Christ during this time no longer walked openly among the people, but hid himself. Hence in the papal chapel the veiling formerly took place at the words of the Gospel: “Jesus autem abscondebat se.” Another reason is added by Durandus, namely that Christ’s divinity was hidden when he arrived at the time of His suffering and death. The images of the saints also are covered because it would seem improper for the servants to appear when the Master himself is hidden

To cover a crucifix, is logical only for Catholics. They feel there are some special powers in images and statues of wood and stone. And when their “Jesus” is supposed to be hidden from both the public and his followers, they will have to cover him. Since He can not move, nor hide him self.
[ A Lamp on a Stand ] “No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light.
The Bible says the light of the World must never be hidden. But lets take a deeper look at this kind of “hiding Jesus”. If you take this kind of faith to its logical conclusion, it is not enough to cover the crucifix for a couple of weeks.
Since Jesus left the cross, and never came back, than the dead man hanging on crucifixes must be removed from Easter Sunday onwards.
Why do the Catholics not do that?
It is a strange religious ritual to make the “Messiah” hide behind the curtain for some time. But to never take Him down from the cross, becomes a theological short circuit. When “Jesus” remains dead on the cross, after He is risen, makes the Catholic mass an ongoing, never ending funeral.
The eternal dead “Catholic Messiah” is a sign of defeat, the very sign of Lucifer.
All Roman Catholics, please pay attention. He is RISEN. Jesus is alive, alive forever more. The empty cross and the empty grave is our sign of victory.
Remove your crucifixes, and lift this kind of yokes and curses from your neck.
