Papal Cross tattoos

Papal Cross Tattoos - Kings have their sceptre, bishops have their crosier, and the Roman pontiff has his Papal Cross. It's a baton of command or authority, an emblem of his papal office. When carried by the Pope, it is held in his left hand so that he might confer blessings with his right. In this way, the papal cross is used much as an archbishop would use his crosier.

The papal cross is a staff with three horizontal bars. Each bar gets successively shorter in length as they reach the top. Since the archbishop carries a two-barred cross, it seems only natural that the pope's higher rank would demand more bars.

So, what do the three bars represent? Some say that they stand for the three crosses on Calvary. Or, as in the Byzantine Cross, the bars may represent features of the cross upon which Christ was crucified-the titulus, the patibulum, and the suppedaneum.

Papal cross carried by the Pope Three is a powerful number in spiritual matters. Most obviously, three is the Trinity; The Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Theological virtues and tenets come in threes: faith, hope, and charity, for example. Or the three realms over which the Pope has responsibility: temporal, spiritual and material.

The bars might also symbolize the Pope's multiple responsibilities of priest, teacher, and community leader. Or do they represent the Pope's three-fold jurisdictional authority as Bishop of Rome, Patriarch of the West, and successor of St. Peter?

Yes to all of the above.
