The miraculous healing of those born blind fill all four Gospels. The healing of the blind is both an awe-inspiring miracle and a metaphor for a healing of the spiritual “blindness” from which we all suffer. What a great gift for a counselor or minister: all those who help us see Truth.
This cross also makes a perfect gift for those in the “seeing professions”: opthalmologists, opticians, clinicians, and all who work with the blind or seeing-impaired.
A Cross of Solace and Encouragement
Measuring 3.75 inches high and 3 inches wide, this cross will hang easily on the wall at home or in the office in the midst of certifications and professional degrees. This solid bronze cross, designed and realized by a master artist in Germany, is for all those who do not see as well as for those who help them.
A Cross for the Blind in Spirit as well as the Blind in Body
This cross illustrates an unforgettable story from the Gospels: the healing of a man born blind (John 9:1-41). This story challenges us to become aware of the ways in which we might be spiritually blind, as the Pharisees were. This solid bronze cross reminds us that healing is not just of the body, but also of the soul, the mind and the spirit.
The reverse side reads in German: Bitte, Herr, dass ich sehend werde mit den Augen im Kopfe, mit den Augen des Herzens, mit den Augen des Glaubens, mit den Augen der Liebe.
Translation: Please, Lord, heal me, so that I might see with the eyes in my head, with the eyes of my heart, with the eyes of faith, with the eyes of love.
