Christ In The Manger


christmas-manger

Christmas morning, my daughter received a drawing pad where the pen writes with water. As the day calmed down from the excitement of opening gifts, I held it and began to draw. The first thing to come to mind was the Chi-Rho. As I drew it on the pad, I quickly seen the Infant Christ in the manger. Keep in mind, I have never been given the gift of artists and my ability to draw is as advanced as drawing stick people. When i drew it, the “P” looked like the “Babe” and the “X” His manger. Today, I can still see the same, but with a much deeper meaning.

Chi-Rho

From Conception to Resurrection and Beyond.

The Chi-Rho invokes the crucifixion of Jesus, as well as symbolizing his status as the Christ.
