Stat crux dum volvitur orbis, "The Cross stands still while the world spins."
~ motto of the Carthusians
“But in order that you should have life, it is not enough that My Son should have become the Bridge, unless you pass over this Bridge.”
~ God the Father to St. Catherine of Siena in The Dialogue
As fragile as the wings of a butterfly, this delicate piece of paper lace also alludes to the metaphor of the bridge. In the dialogues St. Catherine of Sienna, Jesus Christ was described as the magnificent bridge between heaven and earth.
