The Statue of Jesus on the Cross will be placed on the summit of the newly refurbished Apparition Church. His Holiness Apostle Rohan Lalith Aponso will bless this statue on Saturday, 17th September.
The Holy Cross prayer vigil to bless the 9-foot-tall Statue of Jesus on the Cross will be conducted in the Apparition ground of Our Lady of Katunayake’s Shrine. The Holy Cross prayer vigil will begin at 6 pm in the evening.
This Statue of Jesus on the Cross was sculptured to resemble Christ, looking at the people who are travelling on Colombo – Negombo main road which runs in front of Apparition Shrine. This Statue of Jesus on the Cross was not sculptured to resemble the dead body of Christ with his head down upon his breast, as sculptured in many statues of Jesus on the Cross. This statue was sculptured to resemble the living Christ, looking at the people, while he was hanging on the Cross before his last breath.
Once the blessing of this Statue of Jesus on the Cross is over, it will be elevated, to place it in the summit of the newly refurbished Apparition Church. You could see Lord Jesus Christ closely watching at you from this Holy Cross, at the time, when this Holy Cross is being blessed. You could see that only in the evening of 17th September.
His Holiness the Apostle Rohan Lalith Aponso, is an Apostle, who was Chosen and Appointed by Lord Jesus Christ by Appearing in this world. He was also fortunate to see Blessed Mother Mary to his own eyes for 23 occasions.
