The Prodigal Son cross is a touching, solid bronze depiction of the Father embracing his child and makes a wonderful Christian gift. This wall cross reminds us of God’s never-failing, all-embracing love.
The Prodigal Son Cross makes a perfect gift for those in need of a message of God’s forgiving love. It’s also appropriate for those going to Confession (the Sacrament of Reconciliation) for the first time as well as a “welcome back!” gift for those returning to their families or to their Church, perhaps after a long time away. This cross offers consolation and encouragement, unity and peace.
A Solid Bronze Cross in Three Sizes
This solid bronze cross is available in three sizes: small (k28a 2.56 x 1.57 inches), or medium (k28m – 4 x .35 inches) and large (k28g – 7.9 x 6.3 inches) and has an eyelet for hanging or for use as a pectoral cross for ministers and pastors. This cross was designed and cast by a master bronze-smith of world renown in Germany.
A Sign of Mercy, Reconciliation and Forgiveness
This cross is a powerful symbol of the healing and transforming power of love expressed as forgiveness, mercy, reconciliation and acceptance. The wonderful biblical image of the patient, long-suffering father reunited with his prodigal son is depicted here (Luke 15:11-32). Too often we forget that the God of the Christian faith is most essentially the God of mercy and forgiveness. In his homily on March 17, 2013, Pope Francis gently chided us: The Lord never tires of forgiving us. Never! We, we are the ones who tire of asking for forgiveness! This solid bronze cross reminds all of us never to tire of asking for forgiveness when we need to, and never to tire of forgiving others when they need us to.
