After a somewhat long hiatus, I'm back, and with a question too.
I was chatting with a friend of mine today, who happens to be Roman Catholic. He asked me , "Is there any specific meaning behind the Orthodox 8-point Cross".
Frankly, I was humbled, because I never really asked the question myself. I had always understood that the short horizontal line above the horizontal beam of His arms was in memory of the charge they put up to mock Him, "This is Jesus, the King of the Jews". As for the slanted beam underneath, I had always understood that as a support for His feet.
Is this right? If there is more, or if I'm way off, please let me know.
Thank-you all, and a blessed Advent to one and all.
