It features the Dove with Nimbus (symbolic of the Holy Spirit) holding a shell (the traditional symbol of Baptism) with three drops, (symbolic of the Trinity), together with the Alpha and Omega signs, reminding us of Christ Jesus. A perfect Baptism or Christmas gift. On the back of each ornament is Rom 4:24-25 "Jesus our Lord was delivered up for our transgressions and raised for our justification".
INFANT JESUS & CROSS STAR ORNAMENT:
An Ad Crucem designed solid pewter ornament made in America, featuring the Baby Jesus in the crib with the Star of Bethlehem and a Cross shining upon Him. John 1:14, "The Word became flesh and dwelt among" is printed on the front of the ornament. On the back of each ornament is Romans 4:24-25, Jesus our Lord was delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification.
LUTHER ROSE ORNAMENT:
Original Ad Crucem designed Luther Rose ornament. Martin Luther's seal is extremely popular with Lutherans to this day.
"The first should be a black cross in a heart, which retains its natural color, so that I myself would be reminded that faith in the Crucified saves us. "For one who believes from the heart will be justified" (Romans 10:10). Although it is indeed a black cross, which mortifies and which should also cause pain, it leaves the heart in its natural colour. It does not corrupt nature, that is, it does not kill but keeps alive. "The just shall live by faith" (Romans 1:17) but by faith in the crucified. Such a heart should stand in the middle of a white rose, to show that faith gives joy, comfort, and peace. In other words, it places the believer into a white, joyous rose, for this faith does not give peace and joy like the world gives (John 14:27). That is why the rose should be white and not red, for white is the color of the spirits and the angels (cf. Matthew 28:3; John 20:12). Such a rose should stand in a sky-blue field, symbolising that such joy in spirit and faith is a beginning of the heavenly future joy, which begins already, but is grasped in hope, not yet revealed. And around this field is a golden ring, symbolising that such blessedness in Heaven lasts forever and has no end. Such blessedness is exquisite, beyond all joy and goods, just as gold is the most valuable, most precious and best metal. This is my compendium theologiae [summary of theology]."
