10 RUSSIAN CROSSES, CONSECRATED in Church of the Holy
Sepulchre in The Stone of the Anointing in JERUSALEM, HOLY
The Stone of the Anointing, also known as The Stone of Unction, is
a large stone located just inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre,
where it is claimed Jesus’s body was prepared for burial by
Joseph of Arimathea. Most Historians agree that this was the place
where Jesus’s body was prepared for burial.
In the Bible, it was at this location that Mary Magdelene had gone
to see Jesus in the tomb, only to find that his body had been
taken. Moments later, she spoke to a stranger saying “They
have taken my Lord away, and I don’t knew where to find
him’. Little did she know that it was Jesus Christ that had
spoken to her, after he had been raised from the dead, probably the
most important event in the history of mankind. From this
occurrence, Christians believe that Jesus had won his victory over
death, and the Holy Spirit had come into the world to give
forgiveness to everyone through the blood of Jesus Christ.
History of The Stone of The Anointing
During biblical times bodies were usually prepared for burial on a
large stone, usually hours after the person had passed away. During
this period there was nothing like we had today, and bodies were
generally prepared by family members, so it was a very personal
ritual that was often the last time they would be with their loved
ones. The fact that the Stone of the Anointing is where Jesus
Christ’s body was prepared makes it an extremely important
site for Christians all over the world. The stone that now sits
just inside the church was put there in 1810. At this time there
was a totally reconstruction of the Church, both inside and out, in
order to keep the structure from crumbling due to fire damage that
had spread carnage throughout the Church in 1808. The lamps that
hang over the stone are contributed by Armenians, Copts, Greeks and
Latins.The wall behind the stone was meant to be a temporary
addition to the church, but it has not been removed since.
´Jerusalem´ is engraved on the back of the cross.
