Empty Space Pocket Crucifix (Byzantine Style)
Each of us has a space within our heart that God formed for Himself to reside within. In Blaise Pascal's "Pensées", he is quoted as saying: “What else does this craving, and this helplessness, proclaim but that there was once in man a true happiness, of which all that now remains is the empty print and trace? This he tries in vain to fill with everything around him, seeking in things that are not there the help he cannot find in those that are, though none can help, since this infinite abyss can be filled only with an infinite and immutable object; in other words by God Himself.”
The Empty Space Pocket Crucifix is a devotional object that serves as a constant reminder that there is a void, an empty space, within each of us that Christ must be invited to dwell within. This Crucifix is made from waterjet-cut, hand-finished 3/16" thick 304 titanium, stainless steel, or brass and measures 6cm (~2.36") in height, resulting in a balance of awareness and convenience during everyday carry.
This crucifix is a very solid piece in a size convenient to carry in a pocket, though it might be nice to have slightly rounded edges.
