Good Friday

Here's a way to meditate your way into Good Friday.  Below is a thumbnail of Christ Carrying The Cross by Hieronymous Bosch, a painter from the time of Martin Luther.  (I highly recommend that you click on the image for a larger version.)  Like most of Bosch's work, the painting gets more disturbing the more you plunge into it.  This piece is a powerful way to enter into Jesus' journey to the cross and to consider not only the world's reaction to it, but your own response.

May you know Christ, and the power of his resurrection, sharing in his sufferings, and so become like him in his death.
