I trust the Redoubtable Marcus Magnus will not mind my lifting his pic of the new, life-size crucifix that was just dedicated at St. John's Cathedral last night.
I imagine our good rector had to fly through some heavy political flak to get the Suffering Christ instead of a resurrifix. I am very glad he did. Because THIS is what's happening at Mass. (And judging by the amount of yakking that went on even during Mass last night, we stand in sore need of constant reminders.)
