This banner stand is 78" tall by 33" wide and features the image of the Disputation of the Eucharist by Raphael. Fully retractable and stored in an aluminum case, it takes less than a minute to extend the telescopic pole and unroll the Disputation of the Eucharist by Raphael 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 devotion to Christ in the Eucharist.
With Jesus in the Holy Eucharist as the focal point of this fresco, Italian artist Raphael paints the discussion between the Heavenly and earthly: the mystery of Christ's real presence in the Eucharist - the source and summit of our faith. Filled with rich meaning, Raphael depicts the Church militant below (on earth) and the Church triumphant above (in Heaven), filled with Saints, popes, contemporaries of Raphael, Old and New Testament figures, and many others. The power of the Holy Spirit and Angels proclaiming the Word of God connect the two spheres. Also symbolized is the deep union brought about by the Eucharist: man is brought into communion with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - the Trinity - and receives the Father's blessing. May we be urged on in our faith through this image, to seek deeper understanding of the Most Holy Sacrament both through study and contemplation.
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.
