GLOSSARY ENTRY (DERIVED FROM QUESTION BELOW)
English term or phrase:
paraded his cross at his attendance
v jeho přítomnosti stavěl na odiv svůj kříž (své utrpení)
Explanation: It is indeed difficult without context. It sounds almost like a Biblical reference, either being used literally or metaphorically (to describe Christ-like behavior, perhaps with an ironic tone). That's one possibility, at any rate. Can you give us more of the sentence? That might help.
