One day, while St Francis of Assisi prayed at the abandoned, rundown church in nearby San Damiano, the icon of Christ crucified suddenly came alive, speaking, "Francis, Go, rebuild My Church, which as you can see, is in ruins!" Inflamed with a burning love, Francis began to repair the church of San Damiano, but later realized that God was calling him to restore the whole Church, the Body of Christ.
The San Damiano Cross is actually and Icon and was painted to teach the meaning of Christ's saving death and Resurrection. This icon, like all others, is a "window to heaven" which helps us encounter, by grace, our God who loves us unconditionally and who calls each of us to build up His Body on earth.
PRAYER BEFORE A CRUCIFIX
We adore you, Lord Jesus Christ, and we bless you, because by Your Holy Cross You have redeemed the world. — St Francis of Assisi
