Inspired by yesterday’s illustrated quote, I drew another quote for today. This one is considerably heavier as the subject matter requires it to be. The quote is from Canadian Catholic theologian Gregory Baum. The image that came to mind when I read the quote was from a painting I had done for Good Friday. In that painting I had presented an abstract Christ with crown of thorns. It seemed an appropriate image for the words presented here so I borrowed from myself to create this drawing.
To all of you who carry the wounds and bleed on behalf of others and their pain, thank you.
