Messenger: From the journal of Felix, the one called to sculpture
                        the crucifix. Here is the finished
                        crucifix in cedar from the image site
                        in Clearwater, Florida.

 

 

                    Monday 10/19/98

                     Rita Ring called
                     me at 8:40 P.M.
                     to talk about the
                     cross for Jesus and
                     Mary. She will send
                     me some pictures
                     of Jesus as to
                     his image.
                     The Body of Christ
                     will be 9 feet plus
                     the cross. Next I
                     need to do the
                     drawing and figure
                     for the amount of
                     lumber I will need.

July 6, 2001 message continues

Messenger: How the wood for the crucifix was found. It came from three of ten
                         trees.

                     Felix said he did business with a man and the
                         man said he wanted the trees
                         cut down, Felix paid him for the 10 trees,
                         but Felix never cut them down. He forgot about the trees
                         until he knew God wanted him carving the crucifix.

                     Felix said he went back four years later when
                         he knew he needed the trees for the
                         crucifix and they were still
                         there. So he told the man what he was about to do
                         and then Felix cut the trees down.

                     This began the official work with the wood for
                         the crucifix.

                     Here are the 3 trees.
