In 1205, Francis felt called to pray before the crucifix in the abandoned San Damiano chapel near Assisi. When the image of Christ on the cross miraculously spoke the words, “Francis, go and repair My house”, Francis accepted this as his mission. He first worked to repair the church buildings, but his great repair of the Church was his founding of the Franciscan order. The icon cross remains an important symbol to Franciscans and the original cross hangs in the Basilica of St. Clare of Assisi.
Made in Assisi.
