"Crossing Paths: From Goodbye Old Man to the Southern Cross" In the midst of chaos and conflict, the cross stands as a symbol of hope and sacrifice. It whispers tales of farewell, like that of "Goodbye Old Man, " where soldiers bid adieu on the battlegrounds of World War I, their hearts heavy with sorrow. Yet, amidst the horrors of war, there are stories that transcend time. The King of Kings himself embraced this sacred emblem, reminding us all that even in death, resurrection awaits. Saint Therese de Lisieux found solace in her faith and wrote passionately about her devotion to Jesus Christ. Her life was a testament to love's power and simplicity – she became known as Saint Therese of the child Jesus. Pope Francis presides over Easter Holy Mass in St. Peter's Square at the Vatican each year beneath an imposing cross. His presence reminds us that this ancient symbol continues to unite believers worldwide. From France's Burgundy region rises a statue honoring Saint Therese de Lisieux – a reminder that her influence extends far beyond her Carmelite convent walls. The bustling streets of Glasgow bear witness to countless crosses – both physical and metaphorical – as people navigate their daily lives amidst challenges big and small. Even centuries ago, Sheffield recognized its significance by etching it onto maps drawn by William Fairbank in 1771 and 1797. The town understood that every journey begins with crossing paths marked by faith or necessity. Amidst turmoil during WWI, James Clark depicted "The Great Sacrifice, " capturing not only soldiers' bravery but also their unwavering belief in something greater than themselves. British submarines silently patrolled beneath treacherous waters for half a century; their crews carried crosses close to their hearts as they protected freedom from unseen depths below. And finally, we find ourselves gazing upon Kranz -the Southern Cross- guiding travelers across vast oceans, reminding us that even in the darkest nights, hope shines through.
