PURPLE DRAPED COPPER CROSS 2 (SOLD)
2008
SOLD

The Shrouded Cross is draped with a burial cloth to signify the message of the crucifix, Christ's resurrection, and the hope of new life for believers.

It is also known as a Draped Cross.

In most traditions, the sanctuary cross is draped in color during Lent (purple), Good Friday (black), and Easter (white). Some churches leave white on the cross through Eastertide, drape the cross in red for Pentecost Sunday, and then leave the cross undraped until the beginning of Lent the next year.

Purple is a color symbolizing the passion of Christ and the royalty of our Lord.
