Another cross was just registered on the website!
|I discovered this cross at the National Catholic Youth Conference in Indianapolis on November 22, 2013. This cross spoke to me because underneath the rather blunt exterior was a hopefulness underlying on the inside. My life has been full of ups and downs and in these teenage years I have learned to turn to Christ in my time of need. My life had been hard, but once I began to trust in God and his own path for me things started becoming better. Through this new found connection with God I have experienced great things. I have met so many people who have shaped me through my religion into a better person. I have met people who God has granted true miracles to, that not even the science of Yale and Harvard can prove an explanation for. I have met people who had never known Christ and through their meeting were shaped into messengers of God. At the age of 16 I have already had so many amazing experiences all because of our God. My life has evolved and changed and shaped me into a new person all because of my hope and trust in Christ and our God. He has taught me to look through the sadness and despair and trust in him. I know that he has a plan for me, and though I may disagree with some of the plans he has, I will end up where I am supposed to be and happy and with faithful prosperity. I hope that one day I may pass on this cross to another who can also find the light in the dark of hopelessness and struggle, who can also look through the hard times and trust that God has a plan for each and every one of us and that the peaceful, joyous times will come again|
