A beautiful example of the San Damiano Crucifix (also known as St Francis’s Cross).
The History of the San Damiano Crucifix
“Go repair my Church, which as you see is falling completely in ruin” – when the image of Christ in the crucifix at San Damiano miraculously spoke these words to St. Francis, he was awakened to new zeal. He first concentrated on repairing the church buildings of San Damiano and nearby churches. But his great “repair” to the Church was the founding of the Franciscan Order, which began with the followers that Christ began to send to him shortly after the vision.
The silver finish looks stunning against a surround of light brown wood.
The strong, brown cord enables it to be worn as a pendant.
