Stunning
When our first grandchild was born, we made the decision that we would give one "fine" gift to each grandchild. "Fine" would be determined by our finances but we were determined that each child receive the same. We chose this crucifix. We had no idea at the time that we would have 14 grandchildren, so it has been a bit of a struggle to come up with the money for 14 crucifixes, but this is worth it.
Every time we watch a grandchild open the gift, we are taken aback again and again by its stunning beauty. To think, that a representation of the horror of execution could be called beautiful is not surprising because of the One who entered into it willingly for us. The way the corpus hangs on the cross looks realistic of death but without all the gore. The details of this crucifix are fine: the gentle details of the corpus and the wood-like details of the cross are so well done. The only--and notice that I am saying, "only"--disappointment is that the crucifix is not presented in the padded gift box it once was a number of years ago. Now the crucifix comes wrapped, securely, in bubble wrap in a decent enough box, but it is still a disappointment. We give the crucifix at First Communion, and now it is more difficult to unwrap. An adult is needed and an adult is needed to carefully rewrap it and replace it in the box until it can be taken to church for blessing. No disappointment in the crucifix, though.
