Why do Catholics cross themselves?

I do not understand why Catholics make the sign of the cross.

It is a blessing, it is also a way of begining or ending a prayer. Same as folding your hands or bowing your head.

Catholics make the sign of the cross to remind themselves of Christ, and his death on the cross, which provides their salvation.
