Jesus Christ, Lord of All

This image, found in many ancient Byzantine churches, is called Christ Pantokrator, which means “Christ the Ruler of All Things.”

This includes the 28 inches of snow that fell on us yesterday, and the brilliant sunshine that now spreads itself over glistening expanses of pure whiteness.

It is good for us to see Christ in majesty, and to remember that God the Father has promised to put all things under Him.

Just a little thought to start your day.

One comment on “Jesus Christ, Lord of All”

  1. I am a polytheistic heathen but the Byzantine Orthodox culture has a special place in my heart. I visited the Chora monastery in June 2015, it’s dedicated to Christ Pantokrator and features some of the finest Byzantine mosaics.
