This cross is composed of four Latin crosses arranged in such a manner that their bases overlap. The Cross Crosslet is often associated with the liturgical season of Epiphany, which affirms that Jesus is revealed as the Son of God. The four crosses symbolize the four corners of the earth and the spreading of the Gospel to the world.
“…you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
Your Word, like the four winds O Lord, covers the world. Your Word is the Creative Word; your Word is the Saving Word; your Word is the Forgiving Word; Your Word is Love. Thank You for Your Word, spoken deep in our hearts and throughout Your creation. Amen.
