One of the more exotic of cross designs, the Cross Flamant gives the impression of its arms in flames. This symbolizes religious zeal and ardor. Such a cross can be associated with the veneration of saints and martyrs in various Christian traditions. Truthfully I do not recalling seeing this cross in use except for in books describing the cross. Nevertheless it makes a striking statement of fervor and passion.
“Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the Lord.” (Romans 12:11)
Set our hearts afire Lord, set our hearts afire.
When our zeal fades;
When our passion is muted;
When our vision dims;
We ask that you rekindle our spirits, that we may live, love and serve with a holy fervor. Amen.
