Observing this beautiful hand carved olive wood cross, we need to rejoice in God's everlasting wisdom and forever try to find redemption in all of us. To be purified of sin and to defeat death, we follow the teachings of Jesus and this wooden cross is there to keep our faith unaltered. Mother of Pearl gives a mysterious shine as the color comes to life reminding us of the chance we have to find love in God and around us. The four books of the Gospel are represented by the smaller wood crosses. And, a piece of the Holy Land has been filled in the center ring to bring you closer to where Jesus prayed.
