Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity artist Sister Mariella Erdmann shares an icon of Ecce Homo this Lenten Season.
“Ecce Homo” by Sister Mariella Erdmann, OSF, depicts Christ with sad, but loving and compassionate eyes; sad because of the lack of so many to accept His sacrifice for our salvation. Christ’s robe is white, symbolizing light and life, and His hands are extended in invitation and blessing. His heart is white and aglow with love. It is Eucharistic. It becomes a monstrance. He has given us His body and His blood-the perfect sacrifice that is offered each day to the Father at Mass.
