Cross Tree

Cross Tree is the title that describes the concept of this monumental cross, 120 meters high, which houses a chapel for 200 people on its summit. The presbytery is contained by the Sacred Heart of Jesus revealed to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque and which at night is illuminated to illuminate the world with the light that comes from the Immaculate Heart of Jesus Christ. The confessionals are arranged on the "nails" of the hands of Our Lord Jesus and these in turn remind us of the blood shed in his martyrdom for the forgiveness of the sins of all humanity. There is no better place to confess our sins than in the wounds of our Lord.

The Cross is not a stick nailed to the ground alone, but rather, it is the tree that bears fruit, true fruit of holiness for all humanity, for believers and those who are not yet believers. It reminds us of the tree in Genesis, from which both Eve and Adam took of its fruit and sinned. The tree on which Jesus is nailed, made by human hand, becomes an instrument of divine reconciliation, the wood of salvation.

In this monumental Cross you can appreciate the silhouette of the Savior intertwined with the wood that killed him in his crucifixion, identifying itself with the fiat voluntas tua that Jesus Christ said in his passion to his father and which is also found embodied on the other side of the chapel.

The base of this tree is represented by the roots and it houses an open temple where the Way of the Cross is made and holy masses are celebrated.
