Christ Embraces Us

Statue of the Risen Christ
St. Augustine Church
Millville, MA
St. Augustine Church in Millville, MA, was the venue for the funeral service I attended today.  It was a lovely.  The deceased was a  retired army colonel and the burial service was very ceremonial.  During the Mass, my eye was drawn to a statue on my right.  It's a statue of the risen Christ.


Note how the arms of the statue are up, as Christ ascends to heaven.  Now note the shadow's arms.


I like to think that the shadow is showing us Christ embracing us, the people, as He ascends to His Father.
