The My Peace I Give To You Cross reminds us of this assuranance Jesus promises us. This cross is ideally suited for a chapel or other public rooms in hospitals, clinics, hospices, schools and retreat centers.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid (John 14:27).
A Solid Bronze Assurance of Christ’s Peace
The My Peace I Give To You Cross is forged from solid bronze in a foundry in Germany. This cross is designed to hang easily on any wall. Measuring almost 20 inches high and 18 inches wide, this cross will stand out and radiate these most comforting words of Christ: My Peace I give you.
What kind of “peace” does Jesus give us?
Anyone who follows Jesus knows that peace in our world is much more of an ideal than a reality in any true sense of the word. Conflict and strife abound everywhere in every corner of our world and in the deepest recesses of every human heart. The “peace” that the world offers is more of an “absence of war” than true peace. True peace, the peace of Christ, is indeed much, much more than this. As the U.S. Bishops wrote in section 27 of their 1983 pastoral letter The Challenge of Peace: God’s Promise and Our Response:
For us as believers, the sacred scriptures provide the foundation for confronting war and peace today. Any use of scripture in this area is conditioned by three factors. First, the term “peace” has been understood in different ways at various times and in various contexts. For example, peace can refer to an individual’s sense of well-being or security, or it can mean the cessation of armed hostility, producing an atmosphere in which nations can relate to each other and settle conflicts without resorting to the use of arms. For men and women of faith, peace will imply a right relationship with God, which entails forgiveness, reconciliation, and union. Finally, the scriptures point to eschatological peace, a final, full realization of God’s salvation when all creation will be made whole. Among these various meanings, the last two predominate in the scriptures and provide direction to the first two.
