COMMUNION CROSS (Butzon Bercker – Germany) (4 in. H x 3.0625 in. W) – GWC.6014
COMMUNION CROSS: This solid bronze cross is alive with symbols that tell thestory of our Christian faith. A well defined cross, perfect for those receiving their first Holy Communion.
Atop the cross is the Chi-Rho, a symbol that combines the first two Greek letters of Christ and is one of the earliest Christian symbols. On the left and right arms are the grapes and wheat used to make the bread and wine. At the foot of the cross, the fish was an ancient symbol of the church that identified the new Christians who had to remain secretive so they would not be slain. Also the fish reminds us of the feeding of the five thousand.
