The Face of Beauty: Jesus

For he has not despised or scorned the suffering of the afflicted one; he has not hidden his face from him but has listened to his cry for help. Psalm 22:24 NIV

Pieta Jesus

The face of Jesus

from Michelangelo’s Pieta in St. Peters Cathedral, Rome


He has not hidden his face from you in your suffering.

He has heard your cries.

He has brought you victory.

They did not conquer the land with their swords; it was not their own strong arm that gave them victory. It was your right hand and strong arm and the blinding light from your face that helped them, for you loved them. Psalm 44:3 NLT

For you, He made his face visible.

For you, He made LOVE visible.
