Magnificent thurible for incense, modeled after the great swinging thurible in the Cathedral
(pictured below right)
This magnificent thurible, known in Italian as a “botafumeiro,” will hang from the center of the transept tower ceiling. On major feast days, it will be filled with incense and then swung back and forth, in front of the stunning marble High Altar and Altar of Sacrifice. This thurible is modeled after the original botafumeiro in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela (image pictured at bottom of previous page). The Christ the King Chapel thurible will stand at 5’1” tall and will have Gothic details, matching the rest of the chapel’s design, as seen in the sketch pictured on the next page.

Lady Chapel Ceiling
Behind the Sanctuary will be a chapel dedicated to Our Lady. The exquisite ceiling of this chapel is painted a vibrant blue, similar to that of the sanctuary ceiling, and contains a host of symbolism. There are 33 stars in each triangular panel, the number of perfection – Christ’s age when he died, except for the center panel which will have 32 stars, his age when he instituted the Holy Eucharist. This panel is above the old Tabernacle. There are 164 stars in total, which is the year (164 BC) of the rededication of the Temple and the celebrated as the feast of Hannukah. The Corona Borealis constellation (“crown”) is superimposed onto this field of stars and is in the configuration that appears on Our Lady’s tilma, at her head. The constellation has 7 stars, and matches the 7 liberal arts found in the rose window at the opposite end of the chapel.

T r a n s e p t To w e r Ceiling Artwork
Located on the ceiling of the transept tower directly above the Chapel Sanctuary, this dramatic ceiling artwork was hand-painted by alumna Mandy Hain (’07) with the assistance of alumni, faculty, and other local artists. Mandy’s stunning work represents the Cosmos, specifically on Good Friday, with the gold center surrounded by the dark ring signifying the Most Holy Eucharist, Christ the King, breaking through the darkness. The nine angels surrounding the golden Celtic Cross at the center of the work represent the Nine Choirs of Angels. The angels featured are specifically Seraphim, those angels closest to Almighty God. The stately angels in the four curved corners (known as “pendentives”) of the ceiling’s design represent the four corners of the universe being protected by angels as described in the Book of Revelation.

Tr a n s e p t Wi n d o w ( S o u t h ) The south transept of the cross-shaped Christ the King Chapel features this beautifully restored window of the Nativity. This majestic 13-by-24-foot window was crafted by the famous F.X. Zettler Studio of Munich, Bavaria, and is an excellent example of this studio’s lush, pictorial style. The unsurpassed quality of Zettler’s work prompted Pope Pius IX to award it a gold medal in 1870, and King Ludwig II to recognize it with the title of Royal Bavarian Art Institute for Pictorial Painting on Glass in 1873. This window was originally crafted for Incarnation Church in Philadelphia in 1923. Now, after 94 years, the window has undergone a comprehensive restoration. The Beyer Studio has completely disassembled it, cleaned each of the many thousands of pieces of colored and handpainted glass, and then reassembled the pieces with all new leading. Rescuing this important work of Catholic art guarantees its survival in the new Christ the King Chapel. This window speaks to the magnificent humility of our Savior as displayed in the deep mystery of the Incarnation.

Piazza of Christ the King
The final stage of exterior construction will be the building of a beautiful piazza to grace the chapel entrance. The “Piazza of Christ the King” will provide a noble gathering space for the community-centered campus life that flows from the chapel. The piazza will extend the spiritual life of the chapel onto campus and serve as a tangible reminder that every aspect of our life is infused with devotion to Jesus Christ. The piazza will be built from beautifully masoned stone, with outer walls and tiles surrounding a great pillar topped by a statue of Christ the King. The new chapel will provide a setting that unites the academic and spiritual character of Christendom. The piazza will give to our campus a wonderful permanent outdoor area for students to come together in joyful festivity, prayer, and study with the glory of the angels and Christ the King surrounding them. 09/29/22

In the center of the Piazza of Christ the King will sit a beautiful fountain, mimicking the great piazzas and courtyards of Europe. This fountain will be set on a circular structure of stone benches and will act as the base for a 28-foot pillar on which a statue of Christ the King will stand for all to see. This central statue, with the stunning Rose window behind it—which gloriously portrays Our Lady Seat of Wisdom with the angels representing the seven liberal arts—will stand as a visual representation of Christendom’s mission “to restore all things in Christ” and our desire to raise up Christ in the public square through all we do.
