JR2014-03-02Wonderful work! The star also shows that in the depths of despair, God is with us, whether we see Him or not. Kramskoi painted a similar work, hanging in the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow.
2009-02-08This image captures so perfectly the depths of human despair - the loneliness, the hopelessness.
Christ is in our sufferings, our darkest moments - He can identify with those feelings, because when He lived with us, He lived as one of us - and then He died for all of mankind - no greater love than His.
