Why Chi-Rho?

Chi-Rho with Shadow.002

The Chi-Rho symbol is an ancient Christogram where the intersecting Greek letters Chi (X) and Rho (P) form the first two letters of “Christ” in Greek. It was used as a labarum, or banner, prominently held high by the men of the Roman Emperor Constantine in the 3rd century. It is said, that as Constantine marched with his army before a battle he looked up into the sky and saw Rho as the cross and Chi along with the words, “In this sign, you will conquer.” And so, it is in the cross of Jesus Christ that we will triumph. May Chi-Rho lead our way.
