The cross is called an icon cross because it contains images of persons who have a part in the meaning of the cross. The tradition of such crosses began in the Eastern Church and was carried by the Serbian Monks to the Umbrian district of Italy. The Byzantine style was common in Italy before Cimabue and Giotto. The San Damiano Cross was one of a number of crosses painted with similar figures during the 12th century in Umbria. The purpose an icon cross was to teach the meaning of the event depicted and thereby strengthen the faith of the people.

The cross is the main Christian symbol. Worshiping the image of the cross, we see Christ Himself first of all, and symbol of the Way he showed us.

Walking this path, we become gifted from our Mother Church with a neck cross that is a lodestar, a teacher, a weapon and the final goal of our path.
