From Cross to Light

The darkness of the Cross leads to the Light of Christ.”

I took this picture a few years ago when I was on my way to my mission church in Halfway. It was a cloudy day and sunny intervals, and I noticed that someone had planted a wooden cross on a hill on the side of the road just before the descent into Halfway. Naturally I stopped and took a few good photos with the cross in the foreground and the sun peaking or shining through the clouds. This was very meaningful to me, as I saw the Cross being overwhelmed by the light of the Risen Christ, a beautiful meditation. If there is a title to this photo, it should be “The sufferings of Good Friday give way to the joy and glory of Easter,” or even “The darkness of the Cross leads to the Light of Christ.”


  1. Fr Julian... Such an extraordinary picture which "speaks" an incredible visual message. What a blessing for you to be able to photograph such a scene with so much depth to it. What a blessing for us, the viewer, to be able to see with the eye and hear with the soul what your picture is saying. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I love this beautiful photo and meditation, Father. Thank you..
