Know that God is always with you. Do not be shaken and rejoice in hope because God will not abandon you. The message of the cross in this wood carving is foolish only to those without faith. Marking four sides of the world, the wooden crucifix is graced with Holy Land's symbols of faith. Soil, dry flowers, incense and rocks are giving you a full experience of Christian communities of Jerusalem and Bethlehem . Matthew 10:38 "And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me".
This olive wood cross has five glass capsules filled with 5 souvenirs from all over the Holy Land affixed on each corner of the cross and in the middle of it. These capsules include holy incense from the Nativity Church, Bethlehem soil, Jerusalem stone and dried olive leaves and flowers that collectively represent the essence of the Holy Land.
