America's view of the Cross
Cross # 1 - Before 911
Photo was taken at sunrise by a woman on a cruise near Manhattan before 911.
Cross # 2 - After 911
It's a huge 20 foot high, steel I-beam cross, which fell intact from the north tower when it imploded. It was discovered by rescue worker Frank Silecchia in the wreckage on the third morning after the attack. It's a symbol of Faith and comfort and our Lord's presence even in these worst of times, reminding us what our Lord said, "...I will never leave thee nor forsake thee"(Heb13:5). Frank was struck, too, that just as Christ was resurrected on the third day, so the cross was found going into the third morning. Faith Worship services were perform there. Picture was taken by Pastor George Jones in October, 2001.
Cross # 3 - Memorial 911
A 20 foot cross has now been preserved and marked by the city as an artefact that will be part of a permanent memorial. Ironworkers gave it a permanent base and then placed it on the high walkway over West Street and it can be seen from Ground Zero. Fire fighters and Police officers have engraved the names of fallen colleagues on it as "a way of healing". On the right arm of the cross is attached a piece of insulation that resembles the shroud of Christ. Frank believes this cross at Ground Zero will be "revered forever". The Cross reminds us, "For GOD so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life"(John3:16).
