San Damiano Cross

Although the artist is unknown, this cross is well-known as the one beneath which St. Francis was praying when the Lord commissioned him to rebuild the Church. More of an icon than a cross, it artistically features images of people who bring special meaning to the cross itself. The five major witnesses to Christ’s crucifixion: Mother Mary, St. John the Beloved, Mary Magdalene, Mary mother of James, and the Centurion. Also shown are minor witnesses -- angels, patron saints, apostles. At top is an image of the resurrected Jesus surrounded by angels. The original San Damiano cross hangs in the Santa Chiara (St. Claire) Church in Assisi, Italy. This gorgeous replica is made of hand-painted resin-stone mix. Measures 18"H x 13.25"W x 1.5"D.

Also available in 10.75" size (#2006007)

    Our Catholic School principal purchased this for our school and I fell in love with it. So....we purchased six of them to give as gifts. Can't wait to see the reaction on the faces of the recipients. It is way more beautiful than the photo. Thank you for always selling real quality and affordable prices.

    Beautiful Piece

    Love the looks and weight of this cross. The detail and painting quality is very good. I like all the additional images on the face of it. The size is just right too. Not too big and not too small. Only disappointment was seeing that it was manufactured in China.

    When I opened the box for the crucifix, I inhaled and whispered, "Oh,wow."
    This San Damiano Cross is stunning - perfect as a gift, a keepsake, or for a treasure in one's own home.

    I gave this cross to my daughters to put on the wall. They were amazed at the quality of workmanship. It completed my Christmas giving this year.

    Beautiful Cross

    Several years ago I gave the large San Damiano Cross from The Catholic Company to our pastor as a gift. He loved it and placed it in the rectory. Our church was recently remodeled and it was really a great job. My pastor called me and asked it I would consider getting the same cross for use in the church in the confessional. A great cross in a great place for reflection. Thanks to The Catholic Company for this cross and their ability to get me the same cross again.
