This is a very simple, but powerful reflection. Using the music to set the tone and pace, reverently ‘construct’ a throne. Then together say the Litany of Praise.

Music:

Select a suitable hymn or song with a kingly theme. Download the music/lyrics from the web. Eg. “Majesty, Worship his Majesty”: here

Materials:

  • Arm chair
  • Robe
  • Crown
  • Side Table, table cloth
  • Candles, matches

Construct the Throne:

  1. Begin by having one or two people bring the arm chair into the sacred space and set it down.
  2. Bring the robe and drape it over the chair with the fringe to the front.
  3. Bring the side table and table cloth and set it next to the throne.
  4. Bring the candles and light them.
  5. Finally, bring the crown and place it on the seat of the throne.

  6. Say the Litany of Praise together.
