The darkness over Jerusalem on Good Friday,
the empty yet light-filled tomb,
and the living encounter with the Risen Light of the World.
This triptych courtesy of Herbert Gustav Schmalz (c. 1890's)
provides much to mediate upon.
St. John the Beloved Disciple
in The Return from Calvary
always struck me as deeply moving.
Sincerely yours in Jesus and Mary,
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God
Seek the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ
See you on the High Ground!
