Can I also say that without "estas"? As far as I know it does not change anything, I believe I can make the same sentence if I would put "estas" between Cxu and tio

Well, one could say: Ĉu tiu besto sanktas? and you'd leave out the estas, technically. And, though the Holy Owl would complain, saying: Ĉu estas tiu… is not a crime. Heck, if you wanted to you could say: Ĉu sanktas besto tiu? and most experienced (and many non-natively anglophonic Esperantists of less experience) would understand it.

But the sentence does need a verb, and that is the function of estas in the example.

Dankon Fred! I asked other Esperantists too in a whatsapp group and they basicly said the same, thank you for being everywhere on this course to help people with questions like mine!

Would sanctified work for holy, or would that be sanktigita?

Sanktigita. You could say "sacred" though.
