Jesus statue in Poland now taller than one in Rio de Janerio :: EWTN News

Full story from EWTN News

Probably not the most important project to embark on right now; the world needs a living witness, and that would be a Church that was faithful to Jesus and keeps his commandments.

On the other hand, if there were no other pressing matters, there shouldn't be hard feelings about whose statue is taller. Wouldn't it be great if every country had a visible witness that Christ is King? (BTW the feast is coming up: 21 November).

Today my doctor (!) shared an exegesis of the scene where Judas had to kiss Jesus in order to identify him from among his disciples. Why was the kiss needed? Because his faithful disciples (Judas not among them) had become so like Jesus that it really was hard to tell them apart. And that's the challenge to all Christians. As St. Josemaria Escriva says in The Way: How I wish your bearing and conversation were such that, on seeing or hearing you, people would say: This man reads the life of Jesus Christ.

That's all of us: living witnesses, every one. And that's a more powerful witness than 33-meter-high statues.
