Long Live Christ the King!

Viva Cristo Rey!

This photo has not been edited, and was taken with a cell phone. Today, as we sang the recessional hymn for Mass, I glanced at the enormous Crucifix behind the altar. As the organ and the trumpets brightly played the majestic strains of “Crown Him With Many Crowns,” the sunlight hit the Crucifix just right and the entire image of Our Lord was a golden, kingly brilliance. I was so struck with emotion that I broke down in tears. My husband was teary-eyed. My kids were in awe. It was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.

Long Live Christ the King!

  1. So I just randomly found your blog through a mutual Catholic blogger that we both follow on Instagram. I’m not a stalker, just wondering if you were from the Houston area too. Then I saw the picture in this post and realized we go to the same parish!! Small world!
