The 300-pound acrylic cross, created by sculptors Mitchell Meisner and Colby Grace, measures nearly 3 feet tall and took two years to complete to honor the canonization of St. John Paul II.
On November 29, the Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See received a large Peace Cross from the Pave the Way Foundation.
The Foundation commissioned the Cross for the Holy See Mission to the UN as a gesture in support of peace and solidarity among religions.
The Pave the Way Foundation chose to commemorate St. John Paul II with the cross for his work for peace among nations, and in gratitude labor for peaceful relations between Jews and Christians.
Sir Krupp noted that the Dedication placard reads: “The Saint John Paul Peace Cross is given with the prayerful wishes that it inspires the legacy of respect for human dignity as embodied by Saint John Paul II, on all those who gaze upon it.”
Among the Foundation's valuable work is a vast archive of historical research on the role of Pope Pius XII during the Second World War, particularly in relation to the Holocaust.
