A very important part of Catholic and Christian life is the sign of the cross. People often have crosses and crucifixes in their homes as a sign of faith, an important sign of what God gave to us. He gave Jesus Christ, his only son, who died for us on the cross to save us all from sin. The cross and crucifix is seen as one of the most important symbols of Catholicism.
Gifted Memories Faith has a large selection of crosses and crucifixes available, ready for fast shipping within Australia and overseas. Our online store makes it easy for you to find what you would like for your home, or what you need.
Firstly, the difference between a cross and a crucifix. A cross is generally made of wood, and is more of a Christian symbol, from the fact that Christ died on the cross. Catholics believe that unless there is a corpus on the cross, being the body of Jesus Christ, it is really of no significance.
We have Olive Wood crosses and crucifixes. Olive wood is also highly symbolic and revered amongst Catholics, being a significant tree in the Holy Land.
We also have many other wooden crosses and crucifixes, as well as some made of semi-precious stone, such as the Lapis Lazuli cross available in our shop.
If you are looking for something a little more modern, we have glass crosses, and china crosses. Some of our crosses also have scriptures and text on their surface.
Statues are also an important part of worshipping and prayer. Miraculous, Saint Michael, Saint Francis, Jesus Christ and more can be found in our store. They come in a variety of sizes, and each have their own religious significance.
