Years ago while visiting South Africa I found a picture of the Crucifixion that touched my heart, instantly. With pride of place it now hangs on my wall here where I see it every day. Created by South African artist Portchie, he wrote this about it: “I believe that the Crucifixion is the most important happening in history and also in my own personal life. Therefore I thought to comment on it.”
“Look at the Cross and you will see Jesus’ head bent to kiss you, His arms extended to embrace you, His heart opened to receive you, to enclose you within His love.” Saint Teresa of Calcutta
grace, peace & Good Friday Love
“I’ve seen hatred and I have seen love. And Love is more powerful.” Immaculée Ilibagiza
Beautiful. Thank you.
Good Friday love & Easter hope to you in these uncertain times! ✨🙏✨
And coming back to you
Easter blessings to you & your hubby, Susie. ✨🙏✨
I just loved your last quote.
If you read Immaculée’s books (especially “Left to Tell”) that quote has an even more powerful meaning. She survived the Rwandan genocide when all but one of her family were killed… 🌟🙏🌟
What a touching piece of art! The crucifixion story always makes me cry.
There’s so much in this picture to contemplate, so much LOVE! Easter blessings to you and your family, Michelle.☀️ ✨🙏✨☀️
