Last week's devastating fire destroyed the entirety of the Shrine of Christ the King in Chicago. The Shrine is my spiritual home, so I have personally felt the trial from this loss. Despite this great trial, there have been consolations.
Last Sunday a Solemn High Mass was said at the neighboring St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church. On display were a number of items salvaged from the fire-ravaged building. The images of them are below.
Please say a prayer for the Shrine's priests, the Faithful who call the Shrine home, and the neighboring community.
Please consider making a donation to help this monumental rebuilding using the Shrine's Go Fund Me.
