Cross, Christ of the Parousia


  • $ 52.00

Solid Bronze Cross
3.5 x 3.2 inches
Made in Germany

This cross depicts Christ returning in glory in the Parousia, which is Greek ( παρουσία) for “coming” or “arrival.” The Latin equivalent of parousia is “adventus” – advent). The Parousia is commonly known as the “Second Coming of Christ,” the Eschaton, and the End Time. This bronze cross is a beautiful gift for a birthday, first communion, confirmation, and ordination.

So will the Parousia of Christ really be as awful as its depiction in the dark and frightening images of the Book of Revelation? If we can consider the Book of Revelation as an “epistle of consolation” to the Church suffering repeated persecution in 1st and 2nd centuries, then the coming of Christ at the end of time has already long been set in motion by Christ’s Resurrection. The Parousia of Christ will be the glorious fulfillment and culmination of all of creation in Christ – not something to be feared or marked on a calendar, but rather something to be longed for with trust, patience, and hope that Christ will indeed make all things new (Revelation 21:5).
