CHRIST THE RETURNING KING
Acrylic on archival quality masonite, 16 x 24”
Write this: before I come as the Just Judge, I am coming ffirst as the King of Mercy. Before the day of justice arrives, there will be given to people a sign in the heavens
of this sort: All light in the heavens will be extinguished and there will be great darkness over the whole earth. Then the sign of the cross will be seen in the sky,
and from the openings where the hands and feet of the Saviour were nailed will come forth great lights which will light up the earth for a period of time.
This will take place shortly before the last day.
(Jesus' words to St Faustina from her diary 'Divine Mercy In My Soul')
The purple palms represent Christ’s Passion and also His Kingship. There are ffive of them, representing His five precious wounds on His hands, feet and side. The world is surrounded with a crown of thorns denoting the great trials and upheavals culminating in great darkness. But behold, Christ the Returning King will come
to make all things new.
