Symbols of Christianity

For some time I have been using this Chi-Rho emblem:

alpha_chi_ro_omega_md


to symbolize the Christian 4GW. The original design was by James Greece of Catholic and Loving It, with a minor change by Lexington Green of Chicago Boyz.

I found the original graphic on a now-defunkt clipart page, so I am grateful to James for letting me know of the image's original location, and its use as part of his wedding services company. (As a newlywed myself, I can appreciate his work!)

As long as the subject is Christian symbolism, I also wanted to point out "It's Christmas! Let's be glad!" by Sufjan Stevens. Sufjan describes his church as "kind of Anglo-Catholic," so the Christian and Marian themes shouldn't be surprising.

Sing a carol to your mom
Because she knows what's going on
And she knows if you've been bad or good

And if you get what you deserve
To be graded on the curve
Oh, you got a lot of nerve


Listen to the song on last.fm, download from podbop, or purchase from Amazon.

True Sufjan fans may appreciate the animated YouTube video of 'Put the Lights on the Tree'.
