The Tree of Life Cross
The Tree of Life is symbolic of the development of our faith and the whole of our life journey. Whether you are experiencing a painful pruning or celebrating new growth, the image is a powerful symbol of hope. The Tree of Life marks events of transition, new growth and change while remembering and honoring the past.
The Word of the Cross
The cross gathers in itself the entire mystery of salvation, and as such, embraces the entire mystery of the spiritual life. To take up the cross and to live within its power is salvation. It is the Kingdom of God, defined by the Apostle as “the peace and the joy and the righteousness in the Holy Spirit.” It is theosis, deification, the becoming God by grace that is the center and goal of human being and life.
—Fr Thomas Hopko, The Word of the Cross
