CHRIST THE KING


Today is the celebration of Christ the King in our church (Trinity Uniting in Launceston), and marks the end of the Christian year. Next Sunday is the beginning of Advent, signalling 4 Sundays until Christmas Day.

This feast was first decreed by Pope Pius XI in 1925 in response to growing nationalism and secularism.

For this banner ( 3 x 1 metres), I have combined my love of Celtic art with some contemporary shapes. The cross is surrounded by the 10 Commandments and the Alpha and Omega symbols. The letters on top represent Jesus Christ – the Chi Rho, the first 2 letters of the Greek alphabet.
