Jerusalem Cross Host and Chalice
Made of quarter inch birch and painted metallic gold. Host piece measured 15x15 inches. Chalice piece measures 10.5x7 inches.
We chose to use the Jerusalem Cross because of its many and profound symbolisms.
“The Jerusalem cross is believed to represent several things. Historians note that the four crosses surrounding the large center cross represent the four Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The four crosses also are believed to represent the four corners of the earth, in which Jesus desired His word to be proclaimed by His disciples. The large cross symbolizes Christ.
Other historians believe that the five crosses together symbolize the five wounds Jesus suffered on the cross. The four small crosses represent the four wounds of Jesus’ hands and feet, while the large cross signifies Jesus’ pierced heart.”
The three ovals on the chalice represent the Holy Trinity - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The cross and rays represent the image of the Divine Mercy of Jesus.
These are light weight pieces that can easily be hung with small nails.
