It is a small cross with the Vernicle Image of the Saviour on its obverse, its reverse being floriated. The cross has a traditional Orthodox shape of quatrefoil.
On the cross arms around the image of Christ there is written the prayer: “By the power of Your Cross, Lord, save me”. Saying these words Christians invoke God not only for health and и well-being in earthly life, but ask to grant salvation in futurity after death.

In the cross center we see the Vernicle Image of the Saviour, one of the most worshipped images and the most powerful protecting symbol of the whole Christendom. According to the Legend the face image of Christ imprinted on a piece of canvas (towel) wherewith He wiped His face. Having endowed the image with His healing power the Lord sent it to leprous Abgar, King of Edessa. And the King was healed on receiving the image. For everyone to have a possibility of praying before the wonder making image, the King ordered the Hole Towel to be attached to a board and set up in a niche above city gate. The tradition of painting icons on canvas attached to a board is believed to appear since then.

This cross is perfectly suitable as the Sacrament of Baptism for a small child, as well as for adults, women or men.
