Our Franciscana line-up is one of the largest in the christian community. We carry Franciscan crosses, pendants, pins, desk accessories, book marks, wall crosses and magnet sets. Our most popular Franciscana gift item is our St. Francis Assisi pet medal and "Lord Bless You and Keep You" wall cross. Our Tau cross line-up features bronze and pewter crosses, pendants, pins and bookmarks.
The Franciscan symbol of the "crossed arms" is a most familiar one to us. It depicts the arms of JESUS and Francis crossed over the TAU, both bearing the imprint of the Crucifixion nails. Francis' arm is enclosed in the sleeve of his habit. It is a celebration of that remarkable gift of grace which St. Francis received on Mt. Alverna, September 17th - the Stigmata ... the bearing in his own body of the marks of his crucified Lord.
St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and the ecology, was a Roman Catholic saint who took the gospel literally by following all Jesus said and did.
