What does the Two Hearts at the bottom of the Cross signify?
The Two Hearts have scriptural references, as follows:
Matthew 11:25 “Learn from Me for I am meek and humble of heart.”
Luke 2:19 “Mary kept in mind all these things, pondering them in Her Heart.”
Luke 2:51b: “His Mother kept all these things carefully in Her Heart.”
Luke 2:35: “Your own soul a sword shall pierce, that the thoughts of many hearts may be
John 7:38b: “From His Heart will flow rivers of living water.”
John 19:34: “One of the soldiers opened His side with a lance, and immediately
there came out blood and water.”
Each of these passages are very significant, for they clearly indicate that Admirable Alliance of Hearts, which worked the salvation of the whole world: the Heart of Jesus, which suffered to the point of being pierced so as to pour forth upon all believe in Him, the grace of the Holy Spirit, which makes them partakers of the Holy Eucharist in the communion of fellowship in the Catholic Church; and the Heart of Mary, always focused on Her Divine Son, which was predestined by God to suffer with Him for the salvation of mankind.

8. A signed Certificate of Authenticity stating that this is an original piece of “Icon” of our Savior by Oblate Patrick Campbell. Icon means a sacred object or picture that points to Jesus. As St. Basil the Great says, “The honor shown the image passes over to the archetype.” He also illustrates the concept by saying, “If I point to a statue of Caesar and ask you ‘Who is that?’, your answer would properly be, ‘It is Caesar.’ When you say such you do not mean that the stone itself is Caesar, but rather, the name and honor you ascribe to the statue passes over to the original, the archetype, Caesar himself.” So it is with an Icon. You are putting honor to the Icon to which it represents and not the substance. The wood was used by God to redeem us. The Trinity Celtic St. Benedict Cross with the Miraculous Medal is the perfect Icon of our Savior. our Heavenly Father, the Holy Spirit and our Blessed Mother.
9. A perpetual spiritual enrollment for you and your specific intentions.
