Sixteenth Day of Lent

The Anchor Cross

The Anchor Cross is called so because it depicts an anchor. It is also known as the Cross of St. Clement because Clement was martyred by having an anchor tied to his neck and casting him into the sea. In scripture and in tradition the anchor is linked with hope.

“We have this hope, a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul…” (Hebrews 6:19)

In darkest doubt and deep abyss, fix our storm-tossed hearts in Your steadfast grasp.
Hold us;
Keep us;
Abide with us, now and forever.
