The Crucifixion by St. John of the Cross

john-of-the-crosscrucifixionThis drawing was made by St. John of the Cross, probably between 1574 and 1577. He was praying in a loft overlooking the sanctuary at the Monastery of the Incarnation in Avila, Spain.  He received a vision and then sketched what he had beheld.

One wonders if this might be the Father’s view of the crucifixion.
