Tree of Life – Sketch
Today is the day Catholics celebrate the cross with a Feast that used to be called Rood Mass. One reason we celebrate the cross is because it demonstrates God’s great love for us. As Saint Catherine of Siena says:
Nails were not enough to hold the God-Man nailed and fastened on the Cross, had not love held Him there.
Or, as John’s gospel says:
This is the sketch I made for my Tree of Life drawing that I mentioned in an earlier post. The body of Christ is traced from a photo of a crucifix. That’s why it looks better than the rest of the sketch. 🙂
