This beautiful Crucifix is something that will be a blessing in your home. 

Catholics are often asked why we have crucifixes and not just the plain cross? A crucifix is a cross which has the crucified body (the corpus) of Christ. The answer comes from Scripture:

“But we preach Christ crucified: unto the Jews indeed a stumbling block, and unto the Gentiles foolishness: But unto them that are called...Christ, the power of God and the wisdom of God.” ( I Corinthians 1:23-24)

The presence of Christ's body on the cross does not mean that we ignore the Resurrection. Instead, it is a reminder to us that the bonds of sin were broken by Christ's suffering and death (1 Peter 2:24).This beautiful Crucifix is something that will be a blessing in your home. It is a beautiful custom to have a small shrine in your home with statues and images of your favorite saints, and especially of our Lord crucified on the Cross. This beautiful stand-alone Crucifix will remind everyone of how great is the love of Jesus for each of us.

Prayer before a Crucifix

Look down upon me, good and gentle Jesuswhile before Your face I humbly kneel and,with burning soul,pray and beseech Youto fix deep in my heart lively sentimentsof faith, hope, and charity;true contrition for my sins,and a firm purpose of amendment.While I contemplate,with great love and tender pity,Your five most precious wounds,pondering over them within meand calling to mind the words which David,Your prophet, said to You, my Jesus:"They have pierced My hands and My feet,they have numbered all My bones."Amen.
