The Chi Rho Cross is a symbol with deep historical significance. It is formed by overlaying the two initial Greek letters, "ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ" or Christos in English. This ancient Christogram holds great significance in the Early Church, often associated with being a warrior's cross. Just like any other cross we may choose, it represents our commitment to follow Christ's example and wage war against all forms of evil. It serves as a reminder that love is the most powerful force to overcome evil.
