Product DescriptionThe San Damiano Crucifix is famous for its association with St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis was praying before this crucifix icon when he received his commission from Christ to rebuild His church. In a day when the modern Church is in much need of rebuilding, many Christians looked to the San Damiano Cross as a symbol of renewing this commission from God as part of the New Evangelization. What a great way to remind ourselves or a loved one of this call by wearing the San Damiano Crucifix.
This engraved sterling silver San Damiano Crucifix contains the detail of the original San Damiano Icon Cross that still hangs in Assisi, Italy. The San Damiano Crucifix is called an icon cross because it tells a story. Surrounding the image of the transfigured Christ are the saints who played a role in his Passion, reminding each of us of our role to play in God's plan. This sterling silver San Damiano Crucifix measures 1.5" long and could be put on any size chain to make a beautiful necklace. This San Damiano Crucifix is ideal for a male or female, and would be a perfect gift for anyone with a special devotion to St. Francis, confirmation candidate or whose name is Francis!
