Why is the Jesus on that crucifix so small? The cross overshadows him, dwarfs him. This is what I think about in my Aquinas class.
Holy Week | Good Friday (Year A)
On Good Friday we face conflicting urges, on multiple fronts. On the one hand, I don't want to be one of the Christians who Gardner Taylor called "a Resurrection people, but not a Crucifixion people." I don't want to rescue Jesus from the cross--the weekly tendency of many preachers, and I think a poor interpretation of "bringing the good news." It is a reality: Jesus died.
