Good Friday

 

Mark 15: 16ff.:

16 The soldiers led Jesus away into the palace (that is, the Praetorium) and called together the whole company of soldiers. 17 They put a purple robe on him, then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on him. 18 And they began to call out to him, “Hail, king of the Jews!” 19 Again and again they struck him on the head with a staff and spit on him. Falling on their knees, they paid homage to him. 20 And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him out to crucify him. ...

 

Seen at the calvary, St. Thégonnec/ Bretagne - "The "Christ aux outrages" sculpture (17th century)  at St Thégonnec was added by Roland Doré. Christ is blindfolded and as he is hit the executioners ask mockingly "who hit you?"."

Very good, Philine.
Philine: Thank you, Ray!
A nice photo, Philine.
Philine: Thank you, Elizabeth!
An unusual depiction of this happening Philine.
Philine: verry realistic and dramatic, many thanks, Frank!

A moving sculpture...
Philine: The calvaries I saw in the Bretagne are very impressive. Een Goede Vrijdag voor jou, Salima!

I am slightly amused by the in-authentic costumes of the actors Philine
Philine: I understand your feeling, the faces of the executioners look like devil masks. Many thanks, Chris!

An intriguing display. The attendees either side of Jeus seem to have comic masks on and seem to be from a different period to the figures either side of them. One poor fellow on the left has already lost its head.

I wish you a blessed Good Friday. Here, it appears to be a normal day and even my bins will be emptied.
Philine: Good Friday/Karfreitag is the highest religious feastday for us Protestants here. Many people have travelled away over Easter (4 days free). I have slept so long that I cannot attend the church service today at 10 am, but at 3pm there is a quiet hour at church for remembering Jesus' death. I wish you a fine day, the weather is wonderful for bikers. Many thanks, Alan!
Je connais bien ce calvaire , il est magnifique !
Philine: J'ai vu plusieurs calvaires en Bretagne. Merci, Claudine!
Bon Vendred Saint
There is an element of black comedy about this sculpture Philine. In a way that makes it a more powerful image
Philine: Yes, the faces of the mocking executioners are looking like masks. I was very impressed by the calvaries in the Bretagne. I wish you a fine day, no holyday in UK? Many thanks, Bill!
It looks almost like folk art.
Philine: You might be right. Many thanks, Prof. Wilson!
This is an unusual Calvary, the appearance of the two characters either side of Jesus heighten the awful way he was treated.
Philine: The calvaries are often very realistic as I remember. We visited some of them, it was a great experience to be there in the Bretagne. My brother and I have just eaten a special Good Friday meal (Struwen, a sort of pancake) in an old village restaurant, a nice tradition we like to follow each year. Many thanks, Brian!
The figures are a bit like elves of the imagination.
Philine: They look partly awful and cruel, very realistic in my view. Many thanks, Mary!

On Good Friday, Karfreitag in German, traditionally no church bells are supposed to ring, no songs are sung and no music should be played as this is the day Jesus was crucified. I had a discussion with my son today (he knows some German) and he told me about Karfreitag.
Philine: Yes, you are right, tomorrow is also a quiet day, no church bells ... I wonder that there is no holyday 'Good Friday' in some countries, for example UK. For us Protestants it is the highest religious feast day. Many thanks, Louis! Fine that you back again!
