The Bread of Life Cross is one of the most popular sacramental gifts in the Creator Mundi collection. This elegant and graceful bronze cross makes for a perfect First Communion gift for the young person in your life. At 4 inches by 3.25 inches, the Bread of Life Cross is the perfect size to mount on the wall above a bed, or above the desk of a young person who is about to receive his or her First Communion. This solid bronze piece features a satisfying texture, with the grapes, wheat, bread, and wine on the cross foregrounded by being raised slightly from the surface of the cross.
A Theologically Meaningful First Communion Gift
The powerful symbolism of this elegant bronze cross demonstrates the theological basis of communion: the transformation of the bread and wine into the central nourishing sacrament of our lives. It is this meaningful symbolism that makes this cross such a perfect First Communion gift: it is the rare gift that serves as a teacher and reminder of the meaning of this life-renewing sacrament.
Another important piece of symbolism embedded in this cross is the fact that the depiction of the sacrament is at the center of the cross: this reminds us that Communion is at the center not just of the movement of grace into our lives, but also of Christ’s mission on earth, and of the life of our Church communities. Just as the Last Supper brought together all of the Apostles, so does Communion bring our communities together to nourish our hearts, provide us with grace, and enliven our zeal to live in Christ’s footsteps.
Give a First Communion gift that will be treasured for an entire lifetime and will strengthen and nourish the faith of your young person as they grow in understanding of this mysterious sacrament.
