All the details of the cross, which resembles the Old Russian ones of Novgorod, bear a certain symbolism. Eternity is symbolized by the circle connected to the Crucifix, as a reminder that this timelessness is the gift of Christ, who suffered for the sake of humanity. The words of the ancient hymn, located on the cross around the icon of the Savior "Sing the Lord and exalt Him forever" say that the Lord Savior, who shone from the cross and drove away the darkness, brings light to the world and is the Sun of Truth. Image of Edessa is placed over the Crucifixion. This icon is an imprint of the Lord Himself is a sign of intercession and help to people on a piece of canvas. Before disappearing during the invasion of the Turks, the greatest shrine for a long time was located in Constantinople.
The front part ends with a small volume of the prayer "Have mercy on me, God", written on the ear of the Crucifix. The simple words of this hymn, filled with hope for the mercy of God, begin the penitential psalm 50.
The Guardian Angel helps in the fight against evil and the fulfillment of God's commandments. His image is also placed on the cross on the reverse side and is illustrated with the chant "Guardian Angel, pray to God for me". The cherub stands up for a person at Baptism and accompanies him all his life: he instructs to do good deeds and protects from sins and the machinations of evil forces. An Angel remains an assistant to the human soul even after the death of his ward, protecting it and becoming a guide in the afterlife. That is why believers remember and honor their Guardian Angel, ask him for help – a sincere request of a believer gives an angel the opportunity to be near. The prayer to the Angel "Holy Guardian Angel, pray to God for me" is placed on the cross in a circle.
Kazan Icon of the Mother of God
The Holy Mother of God is the intercessor of Christians before God. She gives them protection through her prayers, and also sends down countless benefits through icons. The Kazan icon of the Mother of God is located in the upper part of the cross above the icon of an Angel.
The Holy wonderworkers - Sergius of Radonezh († 1422) and Nicholas the Saint († 342) - are represented on the sides of the figure of the Guardian Angel. People address the elders with prayers for help in life's affairs and troubles, for healing ailments and finding family happiness.
