The gift of the Caravaca Cross - la Vera Cruz is believed to be a powerful amulet to ward off evil and increase good fortune.
To millions of people around the world, the Caravaca Cross is the best symbol of faith and inspiration . . and they wear it to ward off evil and to attract good fortune. 'Caravaca de la Cruz' in Murcia, southern Spain, is one of the five Holy Cities of the world (after Jerusalem, Rome, and Santiago de Compostela ). It has been venerated since the 13th Century when the first pilgrimage took place, and this has continued to the present day. In 1998, Caravaca was granted the privilege to celebrate the Christian Holy Year every seven years in perpetuity by Pope John Paul II.
The Cruz de Caravaca has become the symbol of the town of Caravaca and is now housed in the church sanctuary. To many, including millions of Christians in Latin America, the 'Cross of Caravaca' is a powerful amulet and is believed to ward off evil and to increase good fortune. To locals in Murcia, the Caravaca Cross is believed to protect and give strength, and most caravaqueños say that "Caravaca is the cross, and the cross is Caravaca."
The aura surrounding the Vera Cruz is undeniable, and many who have worshipped in the side chapel where the Cross is housed, are touched by an overwhelming sense of peace. The faith of millions of worshippers throughout 700 years of history seem to fill the sanctuary with love, along with an essence of deep belief and faith, sanctifying the three splinters from the cross on which Jesus Christ himself perished.
And now anyone can send a gift of faith of one of the Caravaca Crosses from online gift shop - necklaces, earrings and other jewellery.
