The “Living-Cross” Pin
The text around the cross: WHY SEEK THE LIVING AMONG THE DEAD? LK 24:5
Explanation: the “Living Cross” brings together the symbols of both Good Friday, because the central symbol is a cross, and also Resurrection Sunday:
The wonderful quote from the angels in Jesus freshly-empty tomb surrounds the cross.
Jesus’ work on the cross is complete, so he is no longer represented hanging on the Living-Cross.
You see through the cross to the believer in Jesus who is wearing the Living-Cross pin and who is part of the living Body of Christ.
The Living-Cross’s empty hole is also reminiscent of the empty tomb Jesus left behind on the first Resurrection Sunday.
In addition, the Living-Cross affirms both the Protestant Crucifix where Jesus’ body has been taken down, and also the Roman Catholic Crucifix, because Christ’s Body is seen on—or through!—the Living-Cross.
