Holy. Monday.

This painting of the crucified Christ is by the great Spanish artist Velazquez. The Christ figure, hanging upon the cross, looks contemplative. He looks as if he is in a meditative / dreaming state of consciousness. To gaze upon him, oddly enough, provides some degree of calm. A peace that passes all understanding. How is it that in the middle of chaos we can find calm or in the middle of a storm we reach moments of peace? Faith opens the heart to such mysteries, and during this Holy Week, we are invited to sit in a contemplative place. Sometimes pausing is the pathway to God.
