This processional cross was created for Pope John Paul II by Terra Sancta Guild for the mass at the World Youth Day in Denver Co. 1993. The theme of the first North American Youth Day was “I came that they might have life, and have it to the full (John 10:10).
The cross represents branches with fruit symbolizing Christ’s disciples, spreading out from the heart of His powerful love, and reaching out in solidarity to others. Perched on the branches, birds, in heavenly tones stand for the people, the faithful, ever hungering to feed in Thanksgiving from the life giving fruit of the trees generous love. The leaves are words of scripture; These words of Christ hath not withered…The words which He speaks are life and spirit (John 6:63)…He is therefore the tree of life (Rev. 22:2) firmly planted in the house of the Lord (cf. Ps. 92:13) producing His fruit in its season, the first fruits of all the trees that imitate Him in these. Then he showed me the river of the water of Life bright as crystal…also on either side of the river, the Tree of Life with its twelve kinds of fruits, yielding its fruit each month; And the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. Revelation 22:1-5
