Cemetery Sunday - Celtic Cross
Legend tells how St. Patrick, whilst preaching to a group of people he wished to convert to Christianity, was shown a sacred standing stone that was marked with a circle symbol of the moon goddess. Patrick then made the mark of a Latin cross through the circle and blessed the stone making the first Celtic Cross.
To the Christian and Catholic faith the Celtic Cross symbolises the enteral endless love of God as shown through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. But what ever their meaning, I find Celtic Crosses to be some of the most beautiful cemetery art.
