Pope Francis Papal Cross Pendant - 2-inch.

The design for cross was carefully drawn out by the hand of Antonio Vedele, an Italian artisan and crafted after his death by his friend Giuseppe Albrizzi. This cross purchsed and gifted to the then-archbishop Jorge Bergoglio.

The Good Shepherd is a good imagery for Pope Francis because he is a model to the Church for joy and forgiveness; this attitude is not far from the mercy shown to St. Peter, who was the first Pope. In fact, Jesus used the same imagery of the Good Shepherd when He confirmed the Papacy. Having given St. Peter the authority of His Church (Matthew 16:18), and St. Peter, in his weakness, having denied Jesus three times (John 18:15-27), Jesus gave St. Peter a chance to redeem himself, charging him "Feed my sheep."

Pope Francis' pectoral cross named The Good Shepherd Cross has been with him for a long time and is a symbol of humble leadership.
