A Lifelong Memory of Grace
This cross powerfully evokes the history and meaning of the beautiful sacrament of baptism with its graceful evocation of John’s baptism of Jesus. The deep symbolism of this cross makes it a beautiful gift.
This cross is a popular baptism gift, depicting the scriptural history, tradition and meaning of the sacrament of baptism (cf. Mt 3:1-17). This cross reminds the recipient of the scriptural importance of the sacrament.
With its gracefully simple lines, this cross also illustrates the humility of Christ, a humility to which Christians aspire. Though John is not fit to carry His sandals, Jesus asks for his baptism, in order to “fulfill all righteousness.” This cross shows the moment at which Jesus’ act of humility becomes a conduit for God’s grace.
Matthew 3:13-17: Then Jesus arrived from Galilee at the Jordan coming to John, to be baptized by him. But John tried to prevent Him, saying, “I have need to be baptized by You, and do You come to me?” But Jesus answering said to him, “Permit it at this time; for in this way it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he permitted Him. After being baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove and lighting on Him, and behold, a voice out of the heavens said, ” This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased.”
