The Franciscan Store
Leather Braided Bracelet with Silver Tau Cross - Red
Red Leather Bracelet
This bracelet is made up of braided red leather with silver beads. It features a silver Tau cross and fastens with a clasp.
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.
