"Jesus is Nailed to the Cross"
Unless I see the mark of the nails ... Jn. 20.25
Christ is held on the cross by nails, an added, gratuitousr
cruelty, but which become, in Thomas' question as on the
Paschal Candle, an important sign of the physical reality, as
well as brutality, of Jesus' dying.
Pray for all victims of mental and physical torture, and all who
seek to assist in the demanding process of healing those who
survive that experience and seek refuge.
