The San Damiano crucifix is an ancient Byzantine-style crucifix, now kept in the Basilica of St. Clare in Assisi, Italy. The San Damiano crucifix is called an icon cross, because it contains pictures and symbols of people who have a part in the meaning of the Crucifix. It was the cross St. Francis of Assisi knelt before in the neglected and dilapidated St. Damian's Church where he was instructed three times by the voice of Christ directing him, “Francis, go and repair my house which you see is falling down.”
