Day 6 of Lent 2023 🍀 The Celtic Cross

Day 6 of Lent 2023 🍀 The Celtic Cross

  We commemorate the Celtic Cross today. The Celtic Cross we have is equidistant, so the  inside and outside form complete circles,  almost as though there are two circles in this one design. It’s enameled in red or blue or green. Today, we will send out a Celtic Cross with every order received. 

     Or, if you send us a Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope – SASE - (2 stamps, please) we will send you a Celtic Cross in the mail. You can find our address on our website, and perhaps at the bottom of this note.

     Some say Saint Patrick, patron of the Irish, introduced the Celtic Cross. It’s quite historical and was popular in the Middle Ages. Many Celtic Cross designs are on headstones, and in the mid 100’s were stylish due to a revival of Gaelic folklore and traditions.

     The center of the circle is often said to represent the sun, and Druids favor this cross too. The idea is that Saint Patrick united the sun with the cross of Christianity and offered that the sun or Son, outshine any God, deity, or spirit of another religion. 

     Another view is that the circle symbolizes eternity, with a circle that has no beginning and no end. 

     The Irish say the center of the cross represents a Celtic Shield.

     The best message we can find about the Celtic Cross comes from the Bible. Its circularity shows no beginning and no end, signifying that God does not change. God is the same always, as in the past, present and the future. 

     A cross itself is an obvious Christian symbol and the Celtic Cross exemplifies that Christianity and worship can spread A CROSS every culture. 

                     Thanks for reading to the bottom line.
