Image that came to me on a winter afternoon, after a conversation.

This icon tells the night of the Christ, the darkness surrounding the Cross. That very one that made Him say: “My God, why have you forsaken me?” because he could not even feel his Father no more. He suffered in the MOST EXTREME SOLITUDE. Nobody can go through such a night, and even less because of love: among us HE IS THE HOLY ONE.

-For I am God, and not man—
    the Holy One present among you-
Hosea, 11: 8-9
