Jesus on cross charcoal drawing

“Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” Charcoal and pencil, 3 hrs.

“I often wonder at the Lord’s last moments on the cross. One night my pencil seemed to be on fire as I pondered Matthew 27:46. How overwhelming his grief must have been to cause him to say this. May our Lenten journey this year draw us closer to Jesus as we meditate on his Passion, Death, and Resurrection. Peace.”

crucifix

“One happens on this crucifix as a surprise. It is ’round a bend at the end of the Memorial Walk at St. Pius X Parish in Tucson, AZ. It is larger than life-size and is striking in its simplicity and starkness—and very moving. This picture was taken just after Palm Sunday, and someone had put a cross of palm in the arm of the corpus.”
