The Small Tau Cross

The Small Tau Cross


5.5 x 4 Mahogany

This Divine Tau Cross is made of Solid Mahogany. It is inspired by the selfless life of Jesus and St. Francis of Assisi.

It is a wonderful cross to hold. You can also hang it on your Christmas tree or in your car with the hand bent copper nail inserted into the top.

Tau is the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet and was used symbolically in the Old Testament. It was already spoken of in the Book of Ezekiel: “The Lord said to him, ‘Go through the city, through Jerusalem, and put a mark upon the foreheads of the men who sigh and groan over the abominations… (Ez. 9:4). The Tau is the sign placed upon the foreheads of the poor of Israel, it saves them from extermination.
It is a sign of the awareness of a Christian, i.e. of a child of God, a child who has escaped danger, of one who has been redeemed and saved. It is a sign of powerful protection against evil (Ez.9,6).
It is a sign that reminds me that I too must be strong in time of trial, ready to obey the Father, and docile in submission, as Jesus was docile before the Father’s will.
