In designing the cross which stands in the sanctuary, Father Rupnik wanted to depict how the fate of Adam and Eve who took the forbidden fruit from the tree in the Garden of Eden was reversed by Jesus Christ who was nailed to the tree on Calvary.

On each of the four sides of the altar there is a cross with an enameled angel inserted into the corner.

Next is Saint Columbanus, one of the many Irish missionary saints that proclaimed the Gospel in Europe during the golden age of the Irish Church in the seventh, eighth and ninth centuries. The last figure on the left-hand side of the mosaic is Blessed Columba Marmion (1858 – 1923). Beatified in September 2000, Marmion was a student at the Irish College

Oliver Plunkett was a student at the Irish College from 1647 – 1654. He was the last Catholic martyr to die in England. Next to Saint Oliver is Saint Brigid, the Patroness of Ireland, who holds her distinctive cross in her hands. The last figure on the right, depicted without a halo but with the palm of martyrdom, is Father Ragheed Ganni (1972 – 2007).
