The Child in the Hand of God Cross reminds us that children are so very near and dear to God their Heavenly Father. Held in the palm of God’s hand, we are all God’s children and are radically and completely dependent on God to sustain and protect us. Our newborns especially embody for us our radical dependence on God. This cross is then an ideal baby blessing gift and baptism gift. Perhaps you or someone you know needs assurance because an infant child is seriously ill or has passed away recently. The Child in the Hand of God Cross is a simple gift of solace and consolation in such difficult times of anxiety, fear, and tragic loss.
A cross for infant children and for those who love them…
The Child in the Hand of God Cross measures 4 inches high and 3.75 inches wide. It has a notch on the back to ensure easy hanging on any wall. This heirloom-quality solid bronze cross was designed and cast in a foundry in Germany. The Child in the Hand of God Cross will be indeed a most valued and appreciated gift in difficult times of stress, fear, sorrow, and loss.
God holds every child in the palm of God’s hand!
The traditional Irish blessing is a comforting prayer for the full recovery of a seriously ill infant child, an encouraging prayer for entrusting a deceased child to God’s tender mercies, a prayer of solace and consolation for those overcome by grief and sorrow, and a confident promise that we will indeed see our deceased little loved ones again in Heaven:
May the road rise to meet you,
may the wind be ever at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and the rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
