Olive Wood Tau Cross Stretch Bracelet
Tau Stretch Bracelet
This beautiful, hand-made olive wood Tau cross bracelet comes with wood beads and is strung on a stretch cord for ease in wearing.
The Tau is an ancient representation of the cross. It is also the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet and is thought to be the sign with which Ezekiel marked those chosen by God (Ex 9:4). St. Francis loved the meaning of the Tau so much he signed his letters with this symbol. When a Franciscan friar wears a habit and stands with his hands outstretched, he becomes a Tau, a living Tau. The Tau is recognized as a distinctive Franciscan symbol.
