Light of the World Banner Stand - 847

  • Sale
  • $189.95

This banner stand is 78" tall by 33" wide and features the image of the Light of the World by William Holman Hunt. Fully retractable and stored in an aluminum case, it takes less than a minute to extend the telescopic pole and unroll the Light of the World banner. Each unit includes a nylon travel bag for storage and transport, making the banner stand an excellent tool for priests, professors, and missionaries who travel and spread repentance and devotion to Christ.

As a glimpse into the interior of the human heart, William Holman Hunt painted this picture in the mid-nineteenth century after Revelation 3:20: "Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me." The risen and regal Christ stands and knocks at a long-unopened door in the midst of a dark and baren forest - the heart and mind of a person who has obstinately kept his heart closed from God and neglected his own soul. As for the lighting in the image, the two main sources of light come from Christ's holiness and His lamp, signifying that He comes to bring the Light of the Holy Spirit - grace - to transform the sleeping person. While meditating upon this image, may our hearts and minds ever be more opened to Our Lord, who comes to mercifully reign over the body and soul.

From top-to-bottom, the banner stand measures approximately 78" tall when fully extended. In reality, the banner stand can be extended several inches more, but a total height of 78" is our recommendation for the best combination of visibility and stability.
