Is super trippy. And excellent. It’s called The White Crucifixion by the Marc Chagall, a Jewish surrealist painter, and it seems to me to exemplify the fact that “Christ, while we were still helpless, yet died at the appointed time for the ungodly. Indeed, only with difficulty does one die for a just person, though perhaps for a good person one might even find courage to die. But God proves his love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:6-8)

I imagine Pope Francis looks at those surrounding the dying Christ and asks himself, “And who was I today? Was I amidst the mockers and scorners? Those pursuing wisdom apart from God? Those too busy harassing out neighbors? Those to concerned with ideology, politics, and the things of this world?”
