Tau Cross

“One of the most significant Franciscan symbols it the letter TAU, the nineteenth letter of the Greek alphabet and the twenty-third, or last, of the Hebrew.  It’s relationship to the Franciscan Order stems from the lifetime of St. Francis himself...St. Francis adopted the TAU as an expressive reminder of the Cross’s sign of salvation as well as an insignia of Franciscan identification with Christ, our Saviour.”
