One legend tells how St Patrick saw a pagan standing stone imprinted with a circle, the symbol of the moon goddess. He is said to have blessed the stone, marking it with a Latin cross- thus creating the first Celtic Cross. Whatever the story, the Celtic Cross pays tribute to those ancient Celts whose legacy remains. And for all to see, it is a powerful symbol of faith. Now the story continues with those who wear a Celtic Cross. In doing so, we remember the precious heritage of Ireland. This land that has always been the home of saints and scholars.
