Forgive my tardiness. I had originally planned to post this Giveaway on Friday, but Uncle Billy's funeral went longer than I had anticipated.
However, here it is!
I'm excited to announce that I'll be giving away four different crucifixes, each a beautiful bit or art.
First up is this amazing Stations of the Cross crucifix. The little boxes each depict a different station. It's small enough to really use as a prayer tool, but it's obviously great to hang on the wall, too.
I just found the size perfect to keep by my bedside for personal prayer. It's like having the Stations of the Cross in my parish church right in the palm of my hand!
So for Lent, I thought this was a very fitting prize for those looking to deepen their understanding of (and appreciation for) Christ's Passion.
It's just magnificent.
Next in line is a dream for those devotees of Divine Mercy. St. Faustina joins Christ as Divine Mercy onto this wood cross. The "shine" you see is the reflective gold paint the artist used to create a border and accents.
Three doting cherubs look down in wonder at the gift of Divine Mercy while St. Faustina is consistently at prayer for all of her "poor souls."
This is the largest crucifix in the giveaway, standing at 12" high, this would be great as an entryway crucifix. It is bold, different, and a great reminder that Christ's death, though terrible, was, in fact, a gift of Divine Mercy. He died not to condemn, but to reconcile.
Again, sorry for the glare. I was taking these images with an iPhone, so not all of them came out as nicely as I'd hoped.
Anyway, this is a truly beautiful crucifix. It's called an "Archangels Crucifix" because of the presence of St. Gabriel (holding the lillies to signify purity and truth), St. Raphael (holding a staff to represent healing) and St. Michael at the foot of the cross defeating the serpent. At the top, these three archangels lead the "host of angels" behind them in prayer and contemplation of the Triune Sacrifice a the center of the cross.
This colorful cross is about 6" high and is STUNNING.
Finally, we have this little guy.
This is a small cross depicting the Trinity in all their infamous iconic appearances. Each branch of the cross contains a different variation on well-known iconography of the Most Holy Trinity.
I love this because of the way it forces folks to remember that we didn't just sacrifice Christ on Calvary. The sacrifice was a TRIUNE sacrifice. God the Father and the Holy Spirit took just as much an active role in this mercy as Jesus. This beautiful cross depicts their loving, united relationship so wonderfully.
Even at only 3.5" it packs a powerful punch!
Okay, so now that you've seen these beauties, directions on how to enter are below!
Good luck and again... may your Lent continue to be blessed!
Guess I should have read the requirement first. lol. Honestly I like all of them. I guess my preference would be the Archangel one or the Stations of the Cross one. With the Trinity one running a close third. We have a large painting of the Divine Mercy though, so I guess that would be my last choice.

Would love to win the Divine Mercy- St. Faustina is my confirmation saint:)
3/22/2014 04:08:15 am
I would like to win the "little guy" 3 1/2" Trinity Cross because it is all about the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and I'm 59 years old and just starting to learn to rest in the Power of the Holy Spirit instead of trying to do everything in my own strength. Somehow all these years I was only focused on the Father and the Son and this Cross would be a daily reminder that they All work together to help all of us each day.
3/24/2014 04:50:46 am
They are all very nice. I'd probably give which ever one I'd win to my RCIA student.
3/24/2014 12:29:36 pm
Love the variety and their beautiful colors!
3/24/2014 01:24:00 pm

Every morning before I get out of bed I have a ten minute conversation with Jesus. How awesome it would be to have the Stations of the Cross at my fingertips. God Bless
3/28/2014 02:50:17 pm
I like them all but my favorite is DIvine Mercy Crucifix. It would
3/28/2014 02:51:13 pm
They are all so beautiful and I would love to win because I believe you can never have enough religious articles in your home. Each time I look at my crucifix in my rooms or my statues, pictures, bible prayer books they remind me of how much Our Lord loves us and is with us always. It just touches my heart to see beautiful religious objects and reminds me how blessed I am to be a Roman Catholic.
3/28/2014 03:04:07 pm
I love them all but if I had to chose my favorite it would be the stations of the cross cross
3/28/2014 04:03:59 pm
They are all so pretty, but the Divine Mercy one would be my choice! My 5 year old just loves Jesus! I would want this to hang next to her bed!
3/28/2014 04:13:17 pm
I forgot to leave my favorite in my previous comment so I would have to say The Archangel Crucifix because I don't have a statue of Saint Michael and would love to have this one. This is my previous comment----They are all so beautiful and I would love to win because I believe you can never have enough religious articles in your home.

Wow These crosses are all very beautiful. I the Archangels Crucifix because I have a love for Angels and all things angels. I even name one of my daughter's Angel. I am proud to say that I know everything about each Archangel and all the other Angels too. I love crosses too.
3/29/2014 03:23:46 am

I love the Stations of the Cross crucifix.
3/30/2014 09:39:58 am
The stations of the cross crucifix is beautiful
3/30/2014 01:15:20 pm
They are all beautiful! I have a special affinity for the Archangels Crucifix since when Elyse was very young (six?), she decided out of the blue that St. Michael was her patron. Little boys are "supposed" to be drawn to Sts. with swords -- but, no, my ruffled little girl has St. Michael and St. George as her dear ones.
3/30/2014 01:37:49 pm
I would want to win the first one for my grandparents :) Thanks for the chance!
3/30/2014 01:57:33 pm
But I guess my very, very favorite is the third one!
3/30/2014 03:21:33 pm
The first one is my favorite Stations of the Cross.
