Christmon Three: The Keys

The third Chrismon symbol is now on our tree.  The third symbol is the keys.

You will note that I have put off posting the symbols for a few days.  I have put this one off a bit, because this blog has a rather diverse Christian readership, among whom would be a variety of positions regarding authority in the church.  Some regard the Pope at Rome as having primacy, others consider all Bishops to have equal authority, and still others would consider the priesthood to lie solely with all believers, and would consider the Bible, alone, to hold authority.

I suppose that I offer the keys, which represent authority in the church, for your consideration, in a spirit of respect, ...and ask that you consider that, regardless of the Christian neighborhood in which we reside, we all call Jesus 'Lord'…and that,…is the key.

I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven,
 and whatever you bind on Earth will be bound in heaven, 
and whatever you loose on Earth will be loosed in Heaven. 
~Matthew 16:19

Pax Christi,


  1. For fifteen years, our church performed a play we called "The Keys, the Cross, and the Kingdom." During that time, I came to understand well the important symbolic and practical power of the Keys. Not only is it God's symbol of authority, but its transfer into His hands from Satan's was part of Christ's commission on Earth. Thank you for this post.

  2. Amen! Anyone who professes to be a Christian should always remember that Christ is the "key" to all our relationships!

    BTW, the new veils that you have in your shop are very beautiful. :)
