Cherished by those who follow Saint Francis, the San Damiano cross is said to be the cross before which the beloved saint was praying when he received word to rebuild the church in Assisi. The original was created in the twelfth century.
This approximately 1-1/2 inch cross is a replica of the original made of composite. It is just the right size for your tiny shrine to Saint Francis, and perhaps, to the animals he so loved and those who loved him. Of course, the 30-inch twisted silky cord makes it comfortable for wearing as intended as well.
