Good Friday

Today in the posts directly below this one I've posted 8 images of the crucifixion by some of the world's great artists -- and some unknowns.

May you know these days the helplessness and pain of the death of our Lord and the wonder of the resurrection.

Thanks. I've picked a couple for meditation over the next day...

The Rouault painting grabbed me - as the lector for the Good Friday service I immersed myself in this week's Scriptures, and after the solemnity of tonight's service, this painting seems somehow to have captured what I am feeling on canvas. All I desire right now is to be in the dark, quiet, alone...and wait for what I know is going to happen on Easter Sunday -- even thought I cannot yet feel the joy. Thank you.

Thanks, Michelle, Shelly. I hope you know that joy these days!
