Hebrews 6:19-20

19 We have this hope, a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters the inner shrine behind the curtain, 20 where Jesus, a forerunner on our behalf, has entered, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.

The Anchor (or the Anchor Cross) can be found in the first century cemetery of St. Domitilla, the second and third century epitaphs of the catacombs, and especially in the oldest parts of the cemeteries of Saints. Priscilla (about 70 examples in this cemetery alone), Domitilla, Calixtus, and the Coemetarium majus.

The anchor reminds us that several of the disciples of Jesus were fishermen. And our faith is anchored in Christ.


God, we thank you for the secure faith we have in our Lord Jesus, the anchor of our souls. Amen.
