It also symbolizes the ultimate victory of good over evil and life over death.

It is a time to reflect on Jesus’ death and resurrection, as well as to give thanks for the new life that He has made possible. For many people, the cross represents hope, peace, and love. It serves as a reminder that no matter how difficult life appears to be, God is always present, offering grace and forgiveness.
