The Pentecost Wall Cross Plaque is a most fitting gift especially for a retreat house, hospice, hospital, convent, monastery, parish, school, and any institution named after the Holy Spirit. Jesus promised his disciples that he would never abandon them and would send them an “advocate” to be with them forever (John 14:12-21). This “Advocate” (or “Paraclete”) is God’s own Holy Spirit who descended upon the gathered apostles as if in tongues of fire. The day of Pentecost is the birthday of the Church! This descent of the Holy Spirit means that Jesus has now not only overcome death, but also transcended the limits of time and space in the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is present throughout all of time and in every place. God’s Presence through the Risen Jesus in the Holy Spirit is now absolutely definitive, irreversible and irrevocable in every time and every place.

Fire of the Holy Spirit
This cross illustrates the Holy Spirit’s descent upon Mary and the gathered disciples on the day of Pentecost. This is a wonderful gift for every occasion where the Holy’s Spirit efficacy and power in the community of believers, in the world, and in the depths of every human heart is celebrated.
When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.
The Promise of the “Advocate” or “Paraclete” (John 14:12-21)
Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. “If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”
