beautiful colors, poignant icon

The blue in this icon is very beautiful and form a cross that divides the four major scenes. I like that this Good Friday icon does not depict Christ's resurrection, but creates space for the meditating Christian to anticipate it...reminds me of how believers are called to live by faith, not by sight. This icon can be especially meaningful for those in difficult circumstances as they consider the sufferings of Christ for the greater joy set before Him, and reflect on the truth that though weeping may tarry for a night, rejoicing (though not immediately in sight) does come in the morning.
