Ambrosiana

CRUCIFIXION
GUIDO RENI

The body of Jesus stands out, pure and immaculate, against the world immersed in darkness. He is raising his gaze to heaven, before emitting his last breath. The candor the Body of the Redeemer, devoid of any bloody element, means that Jesus is the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. Furthermore, the skull of Adam at the base of the cross indicates that Jesus is the new Adam, the principle of the new creation and of a new humanity. It may be that in these unique and terrible days, the last words of Jesus on the cross also came to our lips: “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken me?”
Let it be given also to us to see, as in the painting, that light coming from above; the Father’s embrace to the beloved Son in whom He is well pleased and in whom each of us is son in the Son.
