One of our most comforting bronze crosses, our I Am Always With You Cross is a perfect gift as a reminder of God’s constancy and love. This cross exudes love and faithfulness. How faithful God is! The I am Always With You Cross is a great gift for birthdays and Christmas, for milestones in the spiritual life (baptism, confirmation, first communion) and is ideal for transitional periods, a reminder that God travels with us through all of life—the peaks and valleys, adventures and challenges. It makes a wonderful God-centered housewarming gift.
A Message of Strength and Comfort from the Gospels
Rooted in Jesus’ words to his disciples exhorting them to spread his word, this cross serves as a source of comfort and strength. In Matthew 28:16-20, the eleven disciples go to Galilee to see the resurrected Christ. Jesus says to them:
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 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, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
The I Am Always with You Cross would make a perfect mission gift or gift for those about to leave their comfort zone to spread the Word.
Bidden or Unbidden, God is Present
He is indeed always with us, and the more we remind ourselves of this, the more grounded in reality we become–our actions show it.
