The Olivewood Cross
Caring Crosses are individually carved from a single unique piece of beautifully grained olive wood pruned from the olive trees around Bethlehem the birthplace of Jesus. Christians have been carving crosses like this for hundreds of years, originally for pilgrims and more recently tourists visiting the Holy Land. Each craftsman receives a fair price to support their family and Christian community. The Caring Cross is designed to fit comfortably into the palm of your hand as an aid to prayer or meditation. Ideal as your spiritual companion for easing children's fears, comforting worries and stresses of adults and focusing the prayer of the sick and elderly.
Although I took a bit to post a review, it in no way reflects on the Crosses. These are AMAZING! There is a feeling that I just can't explain...it comes over you the first time you grasp one of these Crosses in your hand. I don't know if it's the fact knowing that the wood came from the same place as Jesus or just....
I gave one of my Crosses to my mother in law for her birthday and to see her face, the tears, it was a wonderful feeling. Sharing these Crosses is an Amazing feeling...it's a different face every time, but the meaning is clear. These Crosses are wonderful.
I planned on keeping the other for myself, but after the joy I've seen it give others I'll be sending it forth....allowing it to bring more joy to even more people.
If you ever are at a lost to get a gift for someone you love or someone that needs a little extra lift, these are perfect. I recommend these to everyone.
If your worried about the actual quality of the Cross don't..They are solid and come in a soft little bag. I did notice that because these are handmade...NO two are the same. Yes, they are the same design, but the color of the grain is different with each and with mine one was slightly fatter at the bottom, but hey my hand is slightly larger than some...so it fit Perfect...like it was made for me :)
