Hey Greg, this would go great on somebody’s grandchild’s wall as a big print : > )
Praying for a better week for all.
Disheveled in Jesus sandals Prophets scream on street corners Some coherent, others not Wrought, bought, prophets from far-off lands Hands of time and shifting sands Yet the human story seemingly stays the same Remains of lives and curtains torn The forlorn suffer at the feet of the wealthy Unwed mothers Brothers hung on tree limbs Locusts and honey for fuel Bitter gruel but better than empty Blind Pharisees Earthbound Sadducees Wine-fueled priests Atrocities Beddings Beheadings Secrecy, lunacy A bad rap Snapchat Truth or lies Disguise Or salvation
This is St James Cathedral of the Armenian Catholic branch of the Eastern rite in Old Jerusalem. Their church calendar begins on September 1 and not the first Sunday of Advent as is used by the Western church. As a part of their Good Friday liturgy the death of Christ is represented by this beautifully decorated “casket”.
