SEVILLE HOLY WEDNESDAY 2018:
SANTÍSIMO CRISTO DE LA SED.
“Sed” is the Spanish word for thirst. This religious image seems to depict Our Lord in the following scene: “aware that everything was now finished, in order that the Scripture might be fulfilled, Jesus said, ‘I thirst.’ There was a vessel filled with common wine. So they put a sponge soaked in wine on a sprig of hyssop and put it up to his mouth.” Jn 19: 28-29.
Jesus thirsts above all for souls….for the love each one of us could and should give Him after all He has done for us to save us from our sins.
