The Jerusalem Cross, also known as the Five-fold Cross, is a Catholic symbol that continues to be used after many centuries. The Jerusalem Cross symbolizes the Five Wounds of Christ: nailing to the cross through the right hand, left hand, right foot, left foot and the piercing of Christ’s side. It also symbolizes the Gospel message reaching out to all four points on the compass, that is to all. Read the Prayer for Middle East Peace on the back side. Card comes pinned with a handmade, gold plated cross from the Holy Land. “Jerusalem” is debossed on back of pin. Pin measures 1″. Smaller size available.
