San Damiano Cross, XL 6.5cm tall

$12.00

This crucifix is known as the San Damiano cross & is a large Romanesque rood cross that St Francis of Assisi was praying in front of when he received his commission from the Lord to rebuild His church. The cross is known as an icon cross because besides the main figure it has images of other saints & people related to the scene of Christ's crucifixion.

Size: 6.5cm tall x 4.25cm wide

 

The back carries the St Francis prayer in Latin, which translates in English to say "O Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console. To be understood as to understand. To be loved, as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned. And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life."

The crucifix comes with a silver steel split-ring through the top loop so it is ready to use.
