Twenty-fifth Day of Lent: Reflections on the Cross

The Budded Cross

The Budded Cross is also known at the Apostles Cross, the Treflee, or the Cathedral Cross. While there are many variations of this cross, the most common has three circles at the end of each arm representing the trinity. It is thought this design was taken from earlier Celtic Druidry, where the circles symbolize the three dominions of earth, sky and sea.

“What sort of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him?” (Matthew 8:27)

The sun and moon;
The morning mist and afternoon breeze and nighttime sky;
The earth and all that is in it are Your gifts Creator God.
When we see may we say thanks for these and all Your many gifts.
