Viva Cristo Rey. Viva.

The Feast of Christ the King



Christ And The Children --Carl Heinrich Bloch (1875)

At that time the disciples approached Jesus and said, "Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" He called a child over, placed it in their midst, and said, "Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
-- Matthew 18: 1-4

Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked them, but Jesus said, "Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
-- Matthew 19: 13-14

Hi Crystal.

Thanks. Carl Bloch was from Denmark, and I really like his paintings even though all of his New Testament characters look like they should be named Bjørn or Sven. :-D

Hi Drew,

Thank you and welcome... and welcome to blogging. Just a point of curiosity; I notice that a few religious brothers I've seen are fans of the movie Fight Club. I've never seen it. Can someone give me some insight on that?
