Christ on the Cross Adored by Eight Saints of the Dominican Order
— Abraham van Diepenbeeck, 1652
Musée du Louvre, Paris, France
Your body at that time was like heaven,
because just as heaven is full of stars,
so Your body was full of wounds.
But Your wounds, Lord, are better than the stars,
because stars only shine at night,
and Your wounds are powerful by night and by day.
—Richard Rolle, Meditations on the Passion
