9" San Damiano Cross with Gold Border
San Damiano Wall Cross
With thick cut wood and a beautiful gold border, this San Damiano cross is a quality replica of the original San Damiano Cross which hangs in the Basilica of St. Clare in Assisi, Italy. It features fine details, outstanding quality, and comes with a mountable backing for a hook or nail.
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.
Made in Assisi.
