This is a beautiful hand carved olive wood cross. It is deliberately uneven, in order to fit into your hand more comfortably than a “correctly shaped” cross would do. It is slightly chunkier than the standard holding cross that I have on sale, and therefore suitable for bigger hands. It comes with its own black velveteen gift bag and prayer card.
It will develop its own natural patina as it is held and handled over time. Hold it and take comfort from it. It is the perfect companion for your prayers and meditation. It has been said that sometimes it is enough simply to hold the cross silently – this is itself prayer. If you or someone you know is ill simply holding the cross may be the best way to pray.
