With its symmetrical design and its symbolism reminding us of the community that we celebrate with Communion, this Bread of Life, Spiritual Drink Cross makes for an ideal First Communion or housewarming gift. At about 4 inches in length, this bronze cross can fit in just about any room, but is especially suited to dining rooms. Lovingly handcrafted in a monastery in Europe, this cross features a pleasing texture, with the hands and bread raised up off the bronze to catch the light. Made from the highest quality bronze, this is an heirloom-quality cross that will stay with your family for generations.
We Cannot Live on Bread Alone
We are reminded during Communion (and any communal gathering where love is present) that even more than the physical sustenance we need, we are creatures designed for love and spiritual knowledge and connection. This cross is a beautiful reminder of that sentiment, which makes it such an ideal First Communion gift. It is the type of message that will grow along with the recipient as they themselves grow up. This bronze cross bespeaks the preciousness of the Eucharist. An ideal gift for Ordination as well.
Preparation of the Gifts in the Liturgy of the Eucharist:
Blessed are you, Lord, God of all creation. Through your goodness we have this bread to offer, which earth has given and human hands have made. It will become for us the bread of life. Blessed be God for ever.
Blessed are you, Lord, God of all creation. Through your goodness we have this wine to offer, fruit of the vine and work of human hands. It will become our spiritual drink. Blessed be God for ever.
