Four Sacred Symbols on One Cross
The Sacred Heart (or Most Sacred Heart of Jesus) calls to mind Christ’s love, compassion and never-ceasing presence in our lives. Many Christians are drawn to this image of Christ’s love. The sacred heart of Jesus is often regarded as an object of devotion among Roman Catholics.
The Chi-Rho is a shorthand abbreviation for “Christ”: Chi (Χ) and Rho (P) being the first two letters in Greek for“Christ” (ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ – Christos). “The Anointed one” is in Greek Christ, a translation of the Hebrew Messiah (משיח).
Alpha and Omega – Alpha (A) is the first letter of the Greek alphabet and Omega (Ω)) is the last letter. Jesus Christ is the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End (Revelation 22:13).
The Fleur-de-lis enjoys a long and complex history in France and Europe. Until about 1300, the fleur-de-Lis was exclusively associated with Jesus, but as time went by, more and more with Mary who is the “lily among thorns” (Song of Songs 2:2). Since the lily was viewed as a symbol of purity and chastity, the fleur-de-lis became increasingly an iconographic attribute of the Virgin Mary. The three Persons of the Holy Trinity are symbolized by the three petals of the fleur-de-lis. Mary is the band which binds the three petals together.
