The Mark of the Thau

If you possessed the “mark of the Thau” (+) on your forehead in Ezekiel’s time, then you stood against idolatry and evil.

We mark ourselves with the sign of the Cross (+) whenever we pray and listen to the Gospel.  This implies therefore that we practice proper behavior when someone wrongs us.  In the words of Bishop Sklba, so much “community hurt and turmoil could be avoided” if we first speak with our brother and sister instead of broadcasting our wrong to the community.
