In Honor of Christ the King, Most High Priest

A new statue of Jesus was built in Swiebodzin, Poland, which is smaller than Cristo Redentor, but stands more majestically as it wears a crown. I was amazed at the engineering of this statue and the efforts put into it by all those involved.

Created by Rev. Sylwester Zawadzki, a 78-year-old priest, says that it rises 108 feet, or 33 meters to signify the total number of years Jesus lived on earth. Including the mound where it stands, it rises 67 feet or 51 meters.

The Christ statue in Brazil's Rio is 125 feet or 38 meters tall.

Watch the final stages of completion of Christ the King statue in Poland:
