This Trinity Crucifix with the Tree of Life is a welcoming wall crucifix for RCIA candidates who are being received into the Church. Measuring 3.6 x 2.9 inches, this crucifix is suitable both for hanging on the wall and for use as a pectoral cross in liturgical celebrations. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – the Holy Trinity – are the central Mystery of a Christian’s personal devotion and the Christian community’s public worship. The vines and branches representing the Tree of Life adds another level of symbolism to this piece. This trinitarian crucifix is well suited as a gift for teenagers and adults receiving baptism, confirmation, and first communion. Pastors may want to welcome new members of their community with this gift.
The Mystery of the Trinity
This crucifix depicts the entire Trinity in one scene: the right Hand of God the Father above (Mark 16:19, Acts 2:33) is sending the Holy Spirit “in the form of a dove” (Mark 1:10, John 1:32) down upon Jesus nailed to a cross, who is the incarnate Word of God (John 1:14). This solid bronze cross – conceived and executed in Germany by a master bronzesmith – captures the Mystery of the Trinity succinctly. A gift worthy of the awesome Mysteries being celebrated on Easter and especially fitting for those receiving baptism, confirmation and first communion.
The Tree of Life
The Tree of Life is symbolic of the development of our faith and the whole of our life journey. Whether you are experiencing a painful pruning or celebrating new growth, the image is a powerful symbol of hope. The Tree of Life marks events of transition, new growth, and change while remembering the past.
