Mini Deus Vult Wood Banner with Jerusalem Cross
Made of eighth inch birch wood. Includes hanging cord and measures 6 inches tall.
Deus Vult, meaning, “God wills it,” was first chanted by Catholics during the First Crusade as a rallying cry.
We chose to use the Jerusalem Cross because of its many and profound symbolisms.
“The Jerusalem cross is believed to represent several things. Historians note that the four crosses surrounding the large center cross represent the four Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The four crosses also are believed to represent the four corners of the earth, in which Jesus desired His word to be proclaimed by His disciples. The large cross symbolizes Christ.
Other historians believe that the five crosses together symbolize the five wounds Jesus suffered on the cross. The four small crosses represent the four wounds of Jesus’ hands and feet, while the large cross signifies Jesus’ pierced heart.”
