Celebrating the Tree of Life Throughout the Liturgical Year

For many people, the cross is merely a fashion statement or “bling.” Yet for the early Christians, the cross was such a powerful reminder of Jesus’ humiliating death as a criminal, it was not depicted until the fourth century.  Since then, the cross has become the central symbol of our Christian faith.   This liturgical year can be one of helping your students experience the cross as the tree of life.
