Christ Child Praying with the Cross
The wooden cross on the floor of the carpentry shop foreshadows Jesus' future passion and death, but His serenity and eyes turned towards heaven show His complete trust in His Father and obedience to His will. This old-style painting of the child Jesus shows us Christ's humanity and our need to approach the Father as Jesus did, humbly and as a child. The meditative atmosphere of the painting and the simplicity draw our eyes and thoughts to Jesus's life of prayer and obedience, even in the midst of the work He had to do, and calls us to do the same.
