O Saving Victim by HugaDuck O Saving Victim by HugaDuck
O salutaris Hostia
Quae caeli pandis ostium:
Bella premunt hostilia,
Da robur, fer auxilium.

Uni trinoque Domino
Sit sempiterna gloria,
Qui vitam sine termino
Nobis donet in patria. Amen.

Drawn in the spirit of Good Friday, and the Veneration of the Cross.



"The usage of the crucifix is not trivial, nor is it a morbid preoccupation with Christ's Death. In it we are reminded of how much Jesus loved each of us individually and as a human race as He hung upon the cruel Cross that was transformed from a sign of torture to the sign of salvation of all Mankind. And at Mass, we are really present at Calvary on Good Friday, and thus, it is the crucifix that intimately reminds us of such an amazing and startling fact."

I like the somber mood in this. Very appropriate.
