Black Braided Leather Bracelet with Silver Beads and Tau Cross

Price  $10.99

Black Leather Bracelet

This bracelet is made up of braided black leather with silver beads and features a silver Tau cross.

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 a distinctive Franciscan symbol.

Handmade in Assisi, Italy.
