St. Andrew Baptismal Cross

229053

From the Skete of St. John!

Sterling silver Orthodox baptismal cross. Perfect for baby baptismal cross or those who desire a smaller three-bar cross.

Tradition teaches that when the Apostle Andrew preached in southern Russia he placed a life-sized three-bar cross at his side. While explaining the Last Judgment, he tilted the foot plate (the bottom bar) to signify that those who confess Jesus as Lord, like the wise thief crucified to the right of Christ, will go up into heaven.  Those who revile and blaspheme him, like the thief crucified to the left of Christ, will go down to hades.
