The Franciscan Tau Cross Pendant is uniquely hand-crafted with Olive wood. This type of cross is also known as the Cross of St. Francis, the Cross of St. Anthony, the Simple Cross, the Greek T Cross, and the Cross of Tau. Its meaning is interesting and rooted in Old Testament history. In Ezekiel 9:5-6, the “Thau” cross or symbol meant that the person who wore it would be spared from death. Persons who were faithful were marked on the forehead by an angel, believed to be St. Gabriel, with the Tau symbol, and were spared from death. The Franciscan Tau Cross Pendant is a great representation and reminder of faithfulness.
