Assumption Catholic Church - Houston, Texas
Just as a building has doors, so to our mind and hearts have 'doors' as well.
Open yours as you step within these doors to explore the wonders within.
Welcome to this most uplifting Church to the Glory of God.
One can see the Glories of Heaven in this most beautiful art work. The Father,Son, Holy Spirit and Mary The Queen of Heaven and earth.
This great art work shows the Assumption Of The Blessed Vigin Mary as many Saints look upon Her and The Holy Trinity.
Mary and The Bible
Our Lord is present waiting for souls to come to Him in His ever giving mercy in the Eucharist - the heart of ourlives and world as Catholics .
The Bible and the Lord's Supper
As one looks to The Savior of mankind on the cross He beared for our sins, our eyes and hearts are drawn only to Him there for us all..The ultimate sacrifice for sin.
As one looks upon baby Jesus pointing with His hands to His Mother , we see Her hand pointing to Jesus as she always points to Jesus in all things.
St. Anthony and St. Leo Luca
St Joseph the patron of Husbands; who cared for Jesus and Mary is so fitting for this parish who cares for all in need
The stained glass art is always breath taking.
It is called the eyes (windows) of the Church.
Icons representing the 14 Stations of the Cross surround the nave. These are a work of art in their simplicity and beauty. The life like figues stand out as a reminder of what Our Lord sacrificed for all of us . As we look upon these works of art our hearts and minds should be drawn to God in prayer.
As you can see Assumption has so much to offer in splend works of Sacred Art !
What beautiful reminders of how much Jesus loves us and the price He paid for our salvation.
In any of these photos, or in your next visit to a church - stop, look and listen. Ponder the Cross. Pray to hear what the Lord might be saying to you through a Station of the Cross, a picture or statue of His blessed Mother, an angel or saint. What do you see in their eyes? Do you see a look of humility? Are their feet bare or in sandals? Every statue or photo can have an amazing richness of messages. This is why, for centuries, the Church used sacred art to teach the people - especially before reading became common. Today, when the graphic arts have become powerful means of influencing people, isn't it fitting that we look to spiritual art to inspire us to lead lives pleasing to God?
