On this cross the poignant and powerful image of the crucified Christ is set against a dramatic background of dark blue enamel with touches of white. God the Father watches from above, offering His blessings, with prostrate angels on either side and the Holy Spirit (as a dove) in the center. The sun and moon look down from upper ends of the horizontal panel, with Jerusalem seen in the distance and the rolling, barren hills of Golgotha below, at the center of which is the skull of Adam. On the back the inscription reads: "Cross, the keeper of the Universe Cross, the beauty of the Church Cross, the power of kings Cross, the support for the faithful ones Cross, the glory of angels Cross, the beginning of everything." It continues: "I speak as One Who has waited for your adoration. Your sins will be judged by My judgment. I will show you the way. I will show Myself to you in order to forgive you. I will give you My kindness, to those who follow Me and who need Me for the sake of their salvation. For your sake I was falsely accused and persecuted." The beauty of this cross lies in its combination of simplicity and ornateness, with Christ depicted graphically, yet with tenderness and compassion. - (PF.5245)
