Product Description

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)

Review: We hung this in our living room. It is absolutely gorgeous. This will become a family heirloom.


Review: I have purchased several St Damien crosses as wedding gifts ! The cross is truly very beautiful .


Review: 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

Review: 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.


Review: 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.

San Damiano Cross

Review: 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

Review: 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.

Would buy again in a heartbeat

Review: Company extremely accommodating Pros: Very beautiful


Review: I couldn't be happier with this purchase.


Review: Gift for school's dinner auction. Lovely!

A Cross for the faithful

Review: It is a absolutely stunning cross. Church quality. I have it on the wall next to my bed and touch Jesus' feet every night. I am pleased I bought the larger one because it makes a statement from across the room you can see it clearly. I wish it would have come with an outline depicting the names of the saints and apostles in their order on the cross. Otherwise, a great crucifix.

A Beautiful Cross, with Jesus

Review: Reminder of our Lord

Beautiful Cross!

Review: This is a lovely item. It was actually larger and heavier than I had anticipated. The detail work is very nice. Pros: Craftsmanship, Heavy, Quality, Size

Why use cheap paint...?

Review: I got this product with high expectations which it surpassed. But when I opened the box a bit of cardboard swiftly touched it and below the Lords's feet a chip of blue paint came off. The chip isn't that big but every time I look at the cross my eye directs me to it. Other than this small issue I'm completely 100% happy. Best Uses: Home, Office; Cons: Cheap paint; Pros: Bedroom, Church, Home, Office, Prayer space

Beautiful reminder of a beautiful life.

Review: We have the San Damiano Cross hanging above our family pictures. I often say "My God and My All" in honor of St. Francis when I pass below it. Sometimes I just make the sign of the Cross.


Review: Excellent quality

St. Francis Lover of animals

Great Addition to Home

Review: The San Damiano Cross is a great addition to our home. it is prominently displayed at the top of the inside of our front door. The art work is very detailed and beautiful. It is a nice piece of work and would recommend to everyone's home.

Breathtakingly Beautiful!

Review: This cross is even more beautiful than it appeared in the on-line picture! I can only say that it is "Breathtakingly Beautiful!" The incredible fine detail and high quality craftmanship is just awesome and it is absolutely perfect as the centerpiece of our home altar, for which I had ordered it for! It far surpassed my original expectations!
