Symbol of the Butterfly
The butterfly life cycle symbolizes the life of Christ. The caterpillar or first stage stands for Christ's life on earth. The cocoon stage portrays Christ's death at the cross and his burial. The third and most important stage is the rebirth after three days. The butterfly's final stage is Christ's resurrection from the dead. The stages in the life history of the butterfly can be transposed onto the life of the Catholic who, after baptism, emerges to a new life.
