The Five Wounds of Christ

The Five Wounds of Christ

 

 

With the five wounds of Christ, also called the sacred wounds, in the tradition of the church are signified those wounds that Jesus Christ suffered at the crucifixion. In addition to the side wound, symbolized in some iconographic representations also by the Sacred Heart, from which the sacraments of the Eucharist and baptism spring with blood and water, these include the hands and feet caused by the nails.
