      Forget the Cross of Lorraine. The double bar cross is the patriarchal or
      archepiscopal cross. It is often used as a pectoral cross by the Patriarch
      of Lisbon and Primate of All Ireland. It is also used on the coats of arms
      of archbishops. After all, St. Methodius was an archbishop. SSC&M are known
      as the Apostles of the Slavs. That cross is not exclusive to the French.
