The Crucifix of San Damiano returns to the place where it spoke to Francis

Assisi, June 15-19, 2016, the Crucifix of San Damiano returns to the place where it spoke to Francis of Assisi.

In this Holy year, Pope Francisco invites everyone to join “in the great mystery of God’s mercy, contemplating the face of Christ.”

To respond to this appeal, the community of Friars Minor of San Damiano and the Poor Clares of proto-monastery of St. Clare, with the patronage of the Diocese of Assisi-Nocera Umbra-Gualdo Tadino and the municipality of Assisi, have desired to return the Crucifix of San Damiano, after almost eight centuries, to its original location.

The Crucifix is waiting for you at the place where he spoke to the young Francis and nourished the prayer life of Clare and her companions.
