Easter Sepulchre


If you're not following Father Lawrence Lew, OP on Flickr, you're missing out. He has amazing photographs every day. This is one of his posts yesterday



"So they took the body of Jesus and bound it in linen wrappings with the spices, as is the burial custom of the Jews. Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been laid. Therefore because of the Jewish day of preparation, since the tomb was nearby, they laid Jesus there."

– John 19:40-42.

This sandstone tableau carved in 1433 depicts the burial of Christ, and it is in St Nicholas' Cathedral, Fribourg.
