The Celtic cross can be used in many ways for the Christian wearer. One way is to bring hope into our lives and over coming hard times. The Celtic cross reminds you of the hope and eternal nature of life. Besides promoting the Celtic cross for inspiration for troubled times I've included a few quotes to help you during troubled times.
"We must accept finite disappointment, but we must never lose infinite hope." (Martin Luther King)
"Just as despair can come to one only from other human beings, hope, too, can be given to one only by other human beings." (Elie Weisel)
"Fall seven times, stand up eight." (Japanese proverb)
"Prosperity is not without many fears and disasters; and adversity is not without comforts and hopes." (Francis Bacon)
Among Celtic crosses are Irish crosses which add a touch of Ireland to your cross like a three or four leaf clover. The Irish cross is decorative with extra symbolism.
"The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials." (Chinese proverb)
"The greatest glory in living lies not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail." (Nelson Mandela)
The Celtic cross and the Irish cross together make up the genre of Celtic crosses. This post has covered many pictures of Celtic crosses. These Celtic crosses should bring hope and joy and above all a positive christian motivation in an uncertain world.
"We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey." (Kenji Miyazawa)
"We should always pray for help, but we should always listen for inspiration and impression to proceed in ways different from those we may have thought of." (John H. Groberg)
