Your Sins Hurt Me...

your sins hurt me... THIS MUCH - Jesus mosaic

Your sins hurt me THIS MUCH!

I cannot take full credit for this one... in fact, I can't take any. Forum user montanaman of the "Sophia House" forums came up with the picture, and the caption. In fact, he came up with quite a few captions for this one (follow the link for more).

The photo is a picture of the "Christ in Majesty" dome at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. It is said to be one of the largest mosaics of Jesus in the world, with over 2 million tiles! I would say "large and in charge" is a quite fitting description. You can read more about the image of Christ in Majesty on the Shrine's website.

I think the image can be even more interesting from a view from the side (as the picture below, from the Shrine's website, shows):

Jesus in Majesty - HUGE Hand
It's... just... scary!

Jesus knows what happens in DC, and He's not happy.

That is just awesome.

I'm not embarrassed to admit that I can't stop giggling. This one just struck me for some reason. But they are all great!

The bottom picture keeps making me think "It's a Jesus smackdown!"

You better behave, boys and girls, or Jesus will be forced to smack you down with that incredibly LARGE hand!

"I've got a headache THIS BIG and its got Obama written all over it!"

Oh my that's good! My friends who went to Catholic U and therefore went to Mass at the Shrine regularly used to say that Scary Jesus was REALLY scary for college students with a hangover!

This brings new meaning to having the fear of God in you. I'd hate to cross this Jesus! 

this one had me in fits!!

I'm not embarrassed to admit that I can't stop giggling. This one just struck me for some reason . But they are all great!

Looks like an indoor touchdown Jesus from the outdoor image at Notre Dame.
