Slate – the Material of Death
It is no coincidence here that slate is the material both of this cross and of tombstones. Slate is mined from deep within the earth. Slate, is a rough and uneven rock, darkly colored in hues of gray and black. No material could better symbolize death or that most notorious instrument of death, the cross. No material could better symbolize the dark tomb from which the Risen Christ emerges in glory, now shining brightly like polished bronze in the noonday sun.
