Tears of Sorrow, Tears of Joy
Alleluia! This weekend, Christians all over the world commemorate Our Lord and Savior's passion. The Orthodox faith's services will be celebrated next weekend. It's an important reminder of the agony that Christ endured because of His great love for us. I painted this image toward the end of last year during a time of prayer and contemplation. It was given to a very special person who helped me understand the virtue of honoring Jesus' mother as the conduit for His life here on earth. That doesn't mean I give Jesus any less glory. It only adds to the prayers that I include in my life. Mary deserves honor and respect as the Mother of our Lord. Praise God!
