The Mirror of the Cross

A Crucifix hangs high on the back wall of St. John's Chapel in St. Michael's Cathedral.

Christ who is your life is hanging before you, so that you may look at the Cross as in a mirror...If you look closely, you will be able to realize how great your human dignity and your value are....Nowhere other than looking at himself in the mirror of the Cross can a man better understand how much he is worth.  
                           – St. Anthony of Padua
