The Arma Christi

ArmaChristi_a

I have been fascinated by this depiction since I first saw it in a large, barn-wall-sized crucifix at the Schwarzwälder Freilichtmuseum Vogtsbauernhof (Black Forest Open Air Museum) in 2008.  The weapons of Christ (Arma Christi) are the instruments of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ.  There’s so much going on, so much to see, and so much to meditate on, this tiny little prayer card can provide so much to contemplate on and meditate on…

Hopefully this card will help you as we enter into the final stages of Holy Week today, this being Good Friday.  While Good Friday is not a day of obligation, we would do well to attend the liturgies of Holy Mother Church!

Kyrie eleison.
