Good Friday 3:00 P.M.

Woman, behold thy son! Son, behold thy mother!
John 19:26-27
Vaurs 374
In this powerful engraving the fallen tree of the knowledge of 
good and evil lies broken and uprooted, like the forked 
tongue of the serpent at the foot of the Cross while in glorious 
contrast, the Easter lilies, like the dawn of Easter,  
rise from earth to heaven proclaiming the victory Christ has won.
