What an amazing opportunity for any Christian. This is the kind of thing that only comes around once in a lifetime. This is no ordinary cross; this is the ability to own a piece of the cave where the baby Jesus spent his first night with his mother Mary. You can own a piece of the cave where the magi came to bestow gifts upon the newly born Lord. Here was the cave in the rear of the house, and used for cattle. In a manger, as the most ready and fitting place, the babe was laid. The place where the shepherds came to pay their adorations, the place marked by the star of Bethlehem.
There are many different options, but this is my favorite: The Carpenter’s Cross is the embodiment of the simple life Christ lived. Straight, clean lines, the ultimate in modesty and a true symbol of the working life of Christ, who Himself was a carpenter by trade. With The Original Nativity Stone at the apex of the Cross, this is the perfect Christian gift for the man, woman or child who strives to live life on a daily basis according to the teachings of Jesus.
Emperor Justinian built the church that now stands over the cave of the nativity in 565 A.D. on the site of a previous church built by Constantine Cesar and his mother the Empress Helena, in 327 A.D. It is one of the oldest churches in the world.
The cave of the nativity is 38 feet long by 11 wide, and a silver star in a marble slab at the eastern end marks the precise spot where the Lord was born. There is an inscription on the star that reads: Hie de virgine Maria Jesus Christus natus est. that means: Here Jesus Christ was born to the Virgin Mary. Silver lamps are always burning around, and an altar stands near, which is used in turn by the monks of the convents. The manger in which the Lord was laid was taken to Rome by Pope Sixtus V. and placed in the church of St. Maria Maggiore, but a marble one supplies its place. A few feet opposite, an altar marks the spot where the Magi stood. The walls are covered with silken hangings.
The stones that are contained in the crosses were removed during construction in the cave. You can read the story about it here by clicking on the cross, and then on the second page clicking on “The Story.”
This is the only time that stones from this most holy of places will legally be removed. Once these stones sell out, they will never be available again. Take this opportunity to give a gift that will become an heirloom for generations of your family. Give the gift that truly keeps Christ in Christmas.
