Good Friday


Almighty God, whose most dear Son went not up to joy but first he suffered pain, and entered not into glory before he was crucified; Mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross, may find it none other than the way of life and peace, through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Amen. (And a wonderful choice of artwork for a Good Friday post, I must say.)

The painter is Caspar David Friedrich, whom I learned about from a music video that Steve Burton put up here.

Unfortunately, in Internet Explorer the image comes up with a large amount of white space above it in the post. It looks fine in Firefox. I can't find any explanation for this or anything to change on the author side of the post, so my apologies to Internet Explorer users.

Even before seeing the author's name, I just knew this wonderful post was yours!

Amen, Lydia, and thank you.

It's fine in Safari, Lydia. Thanks for posting; I linked to it at my FB site.

I do not see any white space above the picture, and I'm using IE version 8.

"The Cross in the Mountains," 1812.

Friedrich returned to this idea - the Crucifixion relocated to his beloved *Riesengebirge* (the Giant Mountains) - again and again. Several of his variations on this theme appear in my video, which you can see here:

Oops - guess I can't embed a video in the combox. Here's the URL:
