“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,
notable of which was…
“In this sign (of God) you shall be victorious.”
And he was to have it represent Christianity as its most sacred symbol.
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…”
