THE LARGE CROSS: Represents human suffering caused by sins of humanity. Suffering abounds in the world and is meaningless if not offered up to GOD.
THE HEART: It is the Heart of Jesus, a living a beating heart. We find this heart hidden in the midst of human suffering. It gives meaning and value to this suffering. Our sorrows and sufferings are caused by our sins, but Jesus takes them and transforms them into an instrument of salvation.
THE SMALL CROSS: It is the cross of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a cross he carried all his life. It represents the innermost sorrow of his soul, caused by the sins of those who are closest to him.
THE HOLY SPIRIT: Sheds light on all the mystery and helps us understand and live it with love.
LIGHT OF GLORY: God the Father, symbolized by the light, surrounds the entire mystery, giving the cross a seal of glory and the promise of resurrection, as he lovingly accepts the sacrifice of Jesus and his Church.
