Made of solid bronze and measuring about 3.4 x 3.4 inches, The RCIA Cross has a beautiful black patina that adds depth and beauty. One of our most beloved pieces, this adult baptism gift or baptism cross illustrates the Christian journey. This cross is the perfect gift for those catechumens going through the process of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). The community of believers accompanies the newly initiated as they enter together ever more deeply into the Mystery of Christ (Mystagogy!).
The Cross for the Communal Journey Ever God-ward
Hold The RCIA Cross in your hand and you will feel the weight of a finely crafted, distinctively designed and aesthetically-appealing piece. This bronze cross, a stunning piece of religious art, emphasizes that we are not alone in our journey of faith — we are all always part of God’s family. A popular religious gift for all occasions (but especially for RCIA), what a beautiful gift this is to celebrate someone special. As one customer shared, “This cross brings joy into my home.”
The Spiral – Symbol of Growth in the Christian Life
Christians live their lives in a ceaseless cycle of seasons: not only Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer, but also Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, Season of the Year. This cycle is not really a cycle (or circle) for Christians, not an endless repetition of the same old thing year after year. Rather, this cycle is really a spiral – a circular yet simultaneous rising (or deepening) into the same, yet ever-new: the Mystery of Christ. This is a “Mystagogy”, if you will, an ever more deeply “leading-into” the Paschal Mystery in Christ, and ultimately into encounter and relationship with God as Holy and Incomprehensible Mystery in and through Christ, all by the power of the Holy Spirit.
