Cui resistite fortes fide
That's beautiful, 'cept for the "Resurrectifix."(I just learned that term yesterday.);)
But there is a crucifix on the altar
That's not a 'resurrexifix' but actually a cruficied Christ the High Priest and King, robed in priestly vestments and crowned.
Mmm. This crucifix, based on the volto santo in Lucca, is really Mithraic in origin but larded over with the Christian symbolism Boethius identifies. Cf 'That Arrow and the Sword', by Hugh Ross Williamson.
