The Tear of the Foresaken Soldier~<br /><br />

This is a one of a kind, remarkable piece. The old stone at the bottom of this cross was formed from a tear that was shed by Longinus, the soldier who pierced Christ's side, to make sure he was dead, after he was crucified.<br /><br />

When he pierced his side there immediately was a flood of blood and water that came out. The phenomenon of blood and water was considered a miracle. This represented one of teh main key teachings of the Church, and one of the main themes of the Gospel of Matthew, which is that "Jesus Christ was both true God and true man." <br /><br />

The blood symbolizes his truehumanity, the water his divinity! A ceremonial rememberance of this is donw when a priest performs a mass. The priest pours a small amount of holy water into the wine before the consecration, and act which acknowledges Christ's humanity and divinity, and recalls the issuance of blood and water from Christ's side on the cross.<br /><br />

It has been archived that Longinus was unaware that Christ was who he was, he thought this was a man being punished for wrong doing and after he speared his side and saw the correlation of blood and water, he immediately felt solice and started to weep.<br /><br />

Longinus then devoted his life to spreading the word of Christianity; he was humbled by what his eyes had witnessed and seeked forgiveness for the stabbing he performed.<br /><br />

The lance that was used to spear Christ remained with blood on it for years; the piece was later cleaned by fire to remove pinnacles of the blood. When the lance was heated, the blood mixed with dried tears of Longinus and the flames of the fire got high and became wild. Sparking from the fire were small stones that Christ created as a sign of forgiveness for the act that was performed; the mix of his blood and Longinus's tears combined to bring beauty and understanding.<br /><br />

This houses one of the rare stones that has been set into a cross that depicts the act of Christ being placed on the cross; it was retrieved several years ago by Shine while he was in a majestic realm of worship. Deedee has worked with this and used it as a personal item to source protection and divinity. <br /><br />

She was blessed with amazement last year after hearing that her son was involved in an accident, she used this ring as an emblem of prayer enhancement and it protected John and healed him from his state of disrepair.<br /><br />

After having an involved situation that allowed her first hand experience with this special stone, she has decided to 'pass the torch' so to speak and offer it to only her elite buyers who will understand and respect the historical amazement of power in which it holds!<br /><br />

It honestly is just SIMPLY DIVINE~!<br /><br />
