World Trade Center cross moved to permanent home

NEW YORK (AP) -

A cross made of World Trade Center beams has been moved to its permanent home.

A flatbed truck moved the 20-foot-tall cross Saturday from its location beside St. Peter's Church in lower Manhattan about a block away to a concrete opening and down 70 feet to where the National September 11th Memorial and Museum will be.

A construction worker discovered the perfectly formed cross made of two steel beams standing upright in the ground zero rubble.

It was blessed during a ceremony by the Rev. Brian Jordan before being moved. Jordan also blessed the beams in the days after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. About 200 emergency workers and families of the victims attended the blessing ceremony.

Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani attended and said the city is stronger today.
