50 Days of Easter - Day 13

Today's reflection is visual, a stunning, hand-colored drawing of the Resurrection, by contemporary Catholic artist, Daniel Mitsui.

From the artist's description:
Christ steps from the open tomb with His right foot and raises His right hand in blessing; the right hand of Christ, in medieval art, represents divine mercy. As in most medieval depictions of the Resurrection, two chronologically distinct events (Christ's rising from the tomb and the stone's removal) are shown together; this was done to emphasize the stone's signification of the Old Testament. Two angels assist in removing the stone, and another swings a thurible. Two soldiers sleep in the foreground.
