Olive wood Rainbow Cross pendant from Dormotion Abbey, Jerusalem
The Rainbow Cross comes from Christian pilgrims on their way to the famous Monastery of St. Catharine. It is a variation of the cross that even today many oriental Christians wear as a tatoo on their wrist. the rainbow has always been a sign of hope and joy- the cross on the other hand stands at first sight for torture, suffering and death.
both symbols are united in the rainbow cross. That cross which for the Benedictine monks in Jerusalem, and of the Church of the Multiplication in Tabgha on the Sea of Galilee, has become deeply meaningful. Free shipping
