very ugly stations of the cross
#39
The JPII crucifix when I look at it always brings to my mind the notion of weight. The tension in the arms reminds me of the weight of sin born by Christ but it never makes me think of the crucifixion as a hopeless or defeatest event. The weight and tension is about to be unleashed in the motion of resurrection - the devil's chortle at his "victory" is about to be silenced.

Psalm 22 has that same tension until verse 22 where exhaustion is overcome by a "second wind" (ruah elohim?).
