The Finding of the Cross

Zurbarán The Crucifixion

The Crucifixion, by Francisco de Zurbarán (1598–1664). From Art Institute Chicago.

O God, who by a wonderful mercy didst make the instrument of shameful death the means of our salvation: Out of weakness make us strong to take up the Cross, that we may be numbered among the redeemed who follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth, even thy Son Jesus Christ, who once was slain, but now liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
