" I am the light of the world "
Welcome to the Web Site devoted to "The Resurrection Cross".
In the Spring of 2010 the twenty-four foot tall sculpture "The Resurrection Cross" was unveiled to the world. The work of Canadian Sculptor Don Frost in a commission for the Catholic Education Centre in Peterborough, Ontario. This beautiful Cross is exceptional in that it portrays for the first time both a Crucified and a Risen Christ in one image. It is an image that portrays the Spirit of Christ in a very real and significant way. One of the most profound effects of having the figure of Christ cut out of the Cross is the image that is produced by the shadow when the sun hits the sculpture at the perfect angle and the illuminated image of Christ glows within the darkness of the shadow of the Cross. The image is one that portrays Christ as both there and not there; a way of allowing the unseen to be experienced, the invisible made visible, the Spirit made real.
"Art must make perceptible, and as far as possible attractive, the world of the spirit, of the invisible, of God." Letter of His Holiness Pope John Paul II to Artists, 1999
"I am writing to express the Holy Father's gratitude upon receiving the reproduction of the "Resurrection Cross" created for the Catholic Education Centre of the Diocese of Peterborough by Mr Don Frost. He appreciated the devoted sentiments which inspired such kindness. His Holiness prays that this manifestation of religious truth and artistic beauty inspires all who gaze upon it to turn to Jesus with a more profound faith, hope and love. He hopes that this symbol of Christ crucified and risen will strengthen all of you to make a greater offering of yourself to the Lord, confident in the assurance that whoever loses his life for the sake of God will save it (cf. Lk 9:24). Invoking upon you the mercy and strength of the Risen Lord, the Holy Father willingly imparts his Apostolic Blessing."
