For those who haven't been there, I add that the mosaic of Christ the King seated in Judgement absolutely dominates the entire nave of the Basilica. The first reaction on walking in is to look up (the place is enormous), and having looked up one's eyes are immediately caught by that mosaic.

Which is what a Catholic church should do to every visitor: force them to look "up." I visit the Basilica every time I have a chance.
