Search for the meaning St. John of the Cross had regarding crystal . . . I challenge you. It is a meditation.
Crystal is clear, sharp, and it shows a multiple of rainbows on the wall. Why do people use it on their chandeliers, etc.? Crystal is like our faith, very sharp, very clear, but if it should ever drop and shatter, its value is naught.
Crystal can symbolize the multiple talents God gives. Yet it is His light and love that shines through these talents, that gives credence to them. Do not mistake the substance for the physical features.
