Look at the tweet below. Someone said it should be a painting. With that in mind, I doctored it a few ways.
First photo below is the original, the next two, are filtered using Prisma. In the third photo, I double exposed it with one I took on Good Friday in Assisi in 2019.
I am very moved by the picture, and of course — I was raised Catholic. It also reminds me of a ceremony I witnessed in Assisi three years ago, when they ritually removed Christ from the cross in the Cathedral of San Rufino and ceremoniously carried him down the hill to the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis. It was quite an amazing experience.

I am not the only one to observe that some of our collective response to this crisis surely depends on the fact that Ukrainians are white.
