|The following prayer was printed in the February 2002
"Santa Margherita da Cortona" booklet sent out by the Basilica. I wrote
to them last year, and they started sending me these wonderful Italian
newsletters. It has been translated from Italian into English.
"O holy Margaret of Cortona, I am here before this image of Jesus crucified which has spoken to you so many times. Obtain for me, too, the grace of hearing His voice: Through His Word, Through prayer, And the events of life. O Jesus Crucified, increase my faith and grant me, as you granted to holy Margaret, the grace of a sincere repentance from my sins; make me at one with the most needy and accompany me, I ask you, to the Father's house. Amen."
This crucifix is the one that spoke to St. Margaret. It was sculpted around the year 1200, and is nearly life-size.
