This solid bronze Holy Spirit Wall Cross is full of symbolism. After the crucifixion, death and resurrection of Jesus, the Spirit came upon the huddled remnant of Jesus’ confused and dispirited followers and transformed them into apostles and martyrs (Acts 2:1-4). The Spirit blows where the Spirit will, in every human heart, including our own. Are we listening and responding to the promptings? What a beautiful gift to remind us of the Holy Spirit’s unceasing work in our lives. This wall cross is also a wonderful gift for all receiving the fruits of the Spirit’s work: the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and first communion.
A Wall Cross of “In-spiration” and Evangelization
This solid bronze cross measures 4.1 long x 3.2 inches wide and hangs easily on any wall at home or in the office. Conceived and cast by a master bronzesmith in Germany, this cross captures the wondrous day of Pentecost and its aftermath: 2,000 years of the Spirit constantly renewing, enlivening and “in-spiring” (breathing into) Christians down to the present day.
The Book of Acts Forged in Bronze
This wall cross is the entire Book of Acts forged in bronze: the Holy Spirit comes upon the community of believers and in-spires them to go forth and proclaim the Good News. The Spirit in-spires us to go forth as well. Let us call to mind the admonition (mistakenly attributed to St. Francis of Assisi): Preach the Gospel. And when necessary, use words.
The reverse side reads in German: Geht hinaus in alle welt und lehret allen Geschoepfen und taufet sie auf den Namen des Vaters und des Sohnes und des Heiligen Geistes. Seht, ich bin bei Euch alleTage bis an das Ende der Welt. (English: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit… See I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”)
