A few years ago I saw a drawing of a cruicifix that I really liked.  The center was the traditional three bar cross shaped icon of the Crucifixion, but was outlined by a larger Celtic Cross.  The traditional IC XC NI KA was in the usual place on the icon, but there were also various prayers and sayings in Gaelic, Greek, and I believe Slavonic on various places including "O Lord Save Thy People".  

This image was on a website regarding celtic culture and Orthodoxy.  It was either a non-Orthodox group calling itself the "Celtic Orthodox Church" or perhaps one of the MP or Greek churches in Britain or Ireland.  I saved this image, but lost it when my hard drive died a few years ago.  If anyone has this, can you please post a link or PM me.  Thanks.

I know it's an old post, but I removed your email from this so you wouldn't be spammed to death by the 'bots.  Thanks!  ~EofK

Mor Ephrem,

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!

That was exactly what I was looking for.  You wouldn't happen to have the text explaining all of the symbolism would you?  Or know if the website that produced this image is still up?  Thanks again!!!!

Dear AmatorDeus,

I don't know where that originally came from, know not of any explanations, etc.  I remembered having seen it on www.orthodoxinfo.com once, and when you asked about it, I found it on their Western Rite page or their Western Christianity page or whatever that is.  If you go there and hunt around, maybe you'll find all you're looking for, at least from their links.  Hope you have luck.

The explanation for this particular Cross is on this link.  Enjoy.

Apropos.... the church factory Sofrino on the outskirts of Moscow is producing exquisite baptismal Crosses in silver which are Celtic in shape but with Slavonic lettering.

I was very delighted to discover these Crosses and when I asked why they produce them they said it is for the many young Russians who work in the IT industry in Ireland and have babies to baptize.   Orthodoxy has now displaced the Methodists in Ireland and, according to Government statistics, comes in at place number 4 in Ireland.  That is still only 20,000 people though.

LOL! The nation that is more Catholic than the Pope. I'm glad to see Orthodoxy growing in all English-speaking nations. Good news!
