Description
This interesting cross was specially designed for use by a priest to bless his congregation. God watches the scene from above, while two angels prostrate themselves--to God and to Christ. The inscription under the arms of Jesus states, "To Your cross we pray, Your resurrection we praise." At left Mary Magdalen lowers her head in reverence and sorrow, with an attendant standing behind her. At right St.John looks up at Jesus with compassion, while St. George 'the Victor' stands behind him holding a spear. The use of white on dark blue adds perspective, especially on the Golgotha hills with Jerusalem in the background. To hold this cross is to be in touch with countless blessings; and to behold it, is to be in touch with the most profound elements of Christianity. - (PF.5251)
