Know that God is always with you. Do not be shaken and rejoice in hope because God will not abandon you. The message of this wooden crucifix is foolish only to those without faith. Marking four sides of the world, this hand carved crucifix is graced with Holy Land's symbols of faith. Matthew 10:38 "And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me". This olive wood cross has four glass capsules filled with 4 souvenirs from all over the Holy Land affixed on each corner of the Crucifix. These capsules include holy incense from the Nativity Church, Bethlehem soil, Jerusalem stone and dried olive leaves that collectively represent the essence of the Holy Land.
