The just man shall flourish like the palm tree. The antimension is where the chalice and patten are placed. It contains a saint's relic and is blessed by the bishop to show that we are in unity with him. The Cedar of Lebanon is a constant theme of strength and awe-inspiring beauty in the Scriptures. The Petrite cross is used to show our allegiance to the Papacy, and the grape vines are a reminder of Jesus as he is the vine and we are the branches.
