25 years together testifies to the power of love

The 25th Anniversary Covenant Cross is an anniversary gift that will be cherished for a lifetime as a compelling reminder of the awesome power of love, human and divine.  As Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, the famous Jesuit paleontologist and thinker, once wrote:

The day will come when, after harnessing space, the winds, the tides, and gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, we shall have discovered fire.  

                                   “The Evolution of Chastity,” in Toward the Future, 1936, XI, 86-87)

Those who celebrate 25 years of covenantal love together have indeed harnessed these energies of love for God.

Matrimony: May we be open to the grace of God in this work of a lifetime. May we see each other through the eyes of our Creator, who brought us together. May this sacred union help to heal and repair our world and ourselves.

A Wedding Gift Rooted in God

The powerful symbolism of this elegant bronze cross surely makes it a favorite among our customers. In the center of the cross, the wedding bands overlap in an openwork design, representing the union of marriage. Beyond this, the bands overlap in a way that evokes “∞”, the symbol for eternity reminding us that marriage is not a temporal matter but a union of two eternal souls (and families) for eternity. Finally, the evocation of the infinity symbol is important in that it is comprised of the two bands coming together to form one symbol. This has echoes in Genesis 2:22-24: “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”

Of course, the most important part of this piece of Christian art is the cross itself–a reminder that the power of a marriage derives largely from the extent to which it is rooted in the examples of Christ’s overflowing love.
