The Chrismon - Chi-Rho

OUR LIFE IN CHRIST story: Through Holy Baptism, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we are brought to faith in Jesus our Lord and Savior, who redeemed us, by His death on the cross, through His Word, and the Sacrament of Holy Communion, and in regular worship we are strengthened until that great day when we shall rise to eternal life with the King of Kings.

There are more Chrismons, other than the nativity scene, that represent the Son, Jesus. The next one is the Chi-Rho.

You can see two letters, X and P. They are the first two letters of the Greek word for Christ: Christos. Christos is spelled XPICTOC in Greek. The Greek letter for X is pronounced "Chi" and the Greek letter for P is pronounced "Rho." That's why we call it "Chi- Rho." Now every time you see this symbol you will know it stands for Christ.

"He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Simon Peter replied, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." Matthew 16:15-16
