Hoop Scoop: Franciscan Crest

It's a Franciscan kind of week, isn't it?

To add to our San Damiano design, we'd also added a Franciscan crest to further represent the simple and sanctifying spirituality of St. Francis of Assisi in our design gallery. This crest was designed from scratch, incorporating many important "Franciscan" elements in just one design...

  • The crossed hands represent the pierced hand of Christ and the stigmata-born hand of St. Francis, both piercing of which are stitched in red thread with gold metallic outlines. 
  • St. Francis adopted the Tau cross as his own personal crest after learning of it's Old Testament correlation through the teachings of Pope Innocent III. This cross can be seen above the crossed hands in our crest.

Sincerely in Christ,
