Blessing crosses are visibly ornate, beautifully patterned, depicting the form of the Christ and used by Orthodox Bishop or Priests to bless or guide the worshipper. The hand cross is usually used at the end of a service or during church processions. They are studded with precious stones or painted Icons and are placed on the altar.

The Purpose of the Orthodox Blessing Cross

The hand held cross carries forward a long established tradition and has been seen in the hands of Clergies when depicted on various works of art. Some hand-made blessing crosses and other smaller palm crosses have even been given as souvenirs to visitors in different parts of the world. There are various applications of this symbolical altar item. It is used to bless the congregation after the service, bless the Holy water by dipping it in and to make the sign of the cross. Priests use them to bless the faithful followers as well as the gathered crowd during church processions.
