Sunday Reflections . . . The four equal armed Cross


“The four equal armed Cross, otherwise known as the Grail Cross,
was revealed to Emperor Constantine just before the battle of Saxa Rubra,
and he heard a voice telling him things about the Cross,

But for the politics of propitiatory sacrifice
the cross of the crucifix gained prominence over it.
Nevertheless, it is still the most revered symbol of Catholicism…”
