Wooden Paramand Cross
A wooden paramand cross is given to a stavrophore (Lesser Schema) monk or nun to wear on their chest at all times. It is meant to be attached by ribbons to a square cloth embroidered with the Instruments of the Passion and the words, "I bear upon my body the marks of the Lord Jesus" (Galatians 6:17). It reminds the monk or nun about the Passion of the Lord and means their willingness to persevere on their path regardless of circumstances, according to the Savior's words: "Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me." (Mark 8:34).
Handmade from fine wood (pearwood, birchwood).
Size: 100×50×10 mm.
A paramand isn't included in the cost of a paramand cross. It can be ordered separately, though.
