Halos are a pagan tradition
of hanging a sunlit nimbus
over the head of great people;
itís a crown of light rays  
to shed an implied importance.

The genuine humility of Christ,
will always shine more brightly
than the human ego, that insists
on sporting tilted, tarnished halos.
For Him, itís of no consequence!

Our Lord is a spiritual high priest,
attributed with characteristics of
pureness, innocence and greatness;
these halos are nothing more than aÖ
fashion accessory of shiny nonsense.



Author Notes

Inspired by:
Heb 7:26
