The Mystery of the Trinity in History
This cross depicts the Trinity in a poignant scene: Reminiscent of Michelangelo’s Pieta, God the Father holds His crucified and now dead Son, just taken down from the cross, in His lap. The Holy Spirit “as a dove” (Mark 1:10, John 1:32) hovers over the Crucified Christ, the Word of God made Flesh (John 1:14), just as the Holy Spirit hovered over the waters of creation (Gen 1:1-2). This cross is a gift worthy indeed of this awesome Mystery and an ideal first communion, confirmation or ordination gift.
In German on the back of the cross: Herr Jesus Christus, Sohn des lebendigen Gottes, dem Willen des Vaters gehorsam hast Du im Heiligen Geist durch Deinen Tod der Welt das Leben geschenkt. Erlöse mich durch Deinen Leib und Dein Blut von allen Sünden. Hilf mir Deine Gebote treu zu erfüllen. Lass nicht zu dass ich jemals von Dir getrennt werde.
Translation: “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, in obedience to the Father’s will in the Holy Spirit you have given the world life through your death. Redeem me from all sins through your body and your blood. Help me to fulfill your commandments. Do not ever let me be separated from you.”
