In Holy Cross, Life Giving Tree, Episcopal rector Donnel O'Flynn offers a historical perspective of the image of the cross as one of life instead of death. After exploring this principle's deep roots in tradition, worship, and art, this book proposes Hildegard of Bingen's concept of virditas - 'green-ness' - as a way to know it in daily life. Each of its six chapters ends with reflection questions for going deeper.
Designed for use by study groups or individuals, it can be used during the season of Lent to gain a new understanding of Holy Cross Day.
