Hi, guys —

I am a Catholic who was volunteering with Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity order in Calcutta this summer.

I have had two dreams with her in them and in the second, she gave me a crucifix that was
T-shaped with PX written on it. She asked me to wear it but I didn't even know about these kinds of crucifixes until I opened up a National Geographic with a Tau cross in it.

Do you know if Tau crosses exist with PX written on them?

Mary Ann replied:

Yoseph —

The Tau cross is the cross of the Franciscan Order.

PX would be the Greek letters Chi (X) and Rho (P), which are the first two letters of Christ:

(Ch = Chi, and R = Rho).

So it is a Franciscan cross with Christ.
