Without a doubt this is the most recognizable and best known Papal Crucifix in the entire history of the Catholic Church. This crucifix has been used by five Popes and witnessed by billions of Catholics and non-Catholics alike for almost 50 years. The Creator Mundi over-sized replica of the Papal Crucifix is of genuine heirloom quality and will be an exquisite and moving enhancement to your chapel, church, or cathedral, where it will be treasured and venerated by the faithful for many generations to come!
A Solid Bronze Papal Crucifix
The over-sized Papal Crucifix is 59 inches long, 34.5 inches wide and 9 inches deep. (To see the three smaller sizes of this crucifix, click here.) This solid bronze crucifix was cast and hand-finished in an artists’ workshop and foundry in Germany. This over-sized Papal Crucifix was commissioned by St. John the Baptist-Holy Angels Roman Catholic Church in Newark, Delaware. Perhaps your chapel, parish church, or cathedral is considering commissioning the same Papal Crucifix as well!
Used by Five Popes and seen by Billions worldwide for over 50 Years
Pope Paul VI commissioned Lello Scorzelli (1921-1997) to create this crucifix. Pope Paul VI first used it – mounted on the top of his pastoral staff – at the closing of the Second Vatican Council on December 8, 1965. All the Popes since then (Pope John Paul I, Pope John Paul II, Pope Benedict XVI, and Pope Francis) have been seen holding this crucifix by billions of Catholics and non-Catholics worldwide.
