"To take hold of the hope that lies before us, which is, as it were, a safe and strong anchor for the soul." These words from the Bible to the Hebrews, spoken by the Apostle Peter, became the source of inspiration for the construction of the cross, which has an unusual anchor shape. That is why it has become a talisman for all travelers and sailors.
The cross is made in an unusual way, but with traditional ancient Christian symbols.
The image of the Crucifixion
On one side of the cross is represented the Crucifixion of Christ the Savior:
- On the left side of Jesus is depicted his mother – the Most Holy Mother of God the Virgin Mary.
- On the right, the most faithful of his apostles and disciples – John the Evangelist.
- At the foot of Christ, you can see the skull of Adam, which according to legend is buried in a place called Lobnoye. "And carrying His cross, He went out to a place called the place of the Head, which is called Golgotha in Hebrew."
- Above the Son of the Lord himself is seen the image of a dove sitting on a throne. According to legend, Our Lord Jesus Christ will judge all sinners when the Day of judgment comes on this throne.
- Under the Crucifixion is the icon "The Miracle of the Three Shipwrights". The legend says Nicholas the Wonderworker was that one the sailors addressed to, they were waiting for an unenviable fate in the form of early death. After the prayer, the sailors were miraculously saved.
The image of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker
Saint Nicholas the Wonderworker is the patron saint of all travelers and navigators, he is depicted on the back side of the cross. To the left and right of Nicholas are Saints Mitrofan and Arseny. They patronized the sailors. Thanks to Mitrofan of Voronezh and his donations to the flotilla, an active struggle was waged against the Turks and the enemies of the Holy Cross.
Arseny was considered a hermit, but with his help, a temple was built, where thousands of fishermen in need found shelter. And his prayer was healing for them.
Under the very image of St. Nicholas is represented the miracle of the Lord-the walking of Christ on water. And next to him is the Apostle Peter, who, when he saw the Lord, decided to become like him, but, being of little faith, he doubted his own strength and began to sink. "Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand, supported him, and said to him,'You of little faith! Why did you doubt it?”.
The cross throughout history remains a talisman for all who are going on a long journey, it is taken as protection from bad weather. At the very top of the cross is the prayer "Save and Protect”.
