TRANSFORMATION CROSS (Butzon Bercker – Germany) (3.8125 in. H x 3.0625 in. W) – GWC.6015
TRANSFORMATION CROSS: A delightful cross with a big butterfly that symbolizes new life. The transformation from lowly caterpillar, to silent pupa (or chrysalis), to glorious butterfly is a profound natural symbol of the transformation which every human person is created to undergo: We live our earthly lives with much toil, struggle, and hunger for meaning. We live our entire lives on an inescapable trajectory towards the absolute and terrifying silence (and seeming finality) of decay, death and entombment. But death is not the end! We will emerge from our tombs, finally and definitively, as our glorious, resurrected and transformed selves in new and eternal life in communion with Christ.
SPECIAL GIFT: for people coming into the church and for Confirmands and those receiving First Holy Communion. For marriages or any special event in one’s life. Think too of someone entering into the religious life. A beautiful gift for those who have lost a loved one to remind them of the life to come after death. We give these as Christmas gifts and love seeing them hanging on the walls of those who receive them.
