Jesus on the Cross - Super Strong Edition

Iz our Lord. Haz new workout plan.

On this feast of the Exultation of the Holy Cross, we contemplate the image of Christ Crucified. It's really not at all like what's pictured above, however - we contemplate the pains and trials Jesus went through to reconcile our horrible sins!

He most definitely did not muscle himself off the cross or resurrect himself from the Cross (as many would make him out to do); rather, he let himself be killed on the cross, then rose on the third day!

A Prayer Before the Crucifix

Look down upon me good and gentle Jesus, while before Thy face I humbly kneel and with burning soul pray and beseech Thee to fix deep in my heart lively sentiments of faith, hope and charity, true contrition for my sins and a firm purpose of amendment, while I contemplate with great love and tender pity Thy Five Wounds, pondering over them within me and calling to mind the words which David, Thy prophet said of Thee, my Jesus, “They have pierced My Hands and My Feet, they have numbered all My Bones.” [Psalm 21: 17 – 18]


Interesting ... different ... but somehow can't get my head around the image of "Arnold SchwarzenKrist" ...

Well, He *will* be back, right...?

lol - alternative caption: "I'll be back."

Wow, that's a strange one. Good commentary. He most certainly didn't break himself free from the cross, but rather accepted it willingly.
