Humans are no strangers to pain, to depression, to things (including in our own minds) that make us feel hopeless, trapped, hated, unheard, or afraid. And we often bear the worst pain alone, because we do not know how to talk about it, are afraid to be judged or seen differently, or simply cannot find anyone who has been where we are.
But we do know Someone who has been who we are. Someone in whose steps the Church is called to walk. And in Lent, and especially in Holy Week, we remember His suffering—as he bore all the evil of mankind on His shoulders.
March 20-26 2016, the Colorado Springs artistic community (with support from its friends around the world) brings its combined vision to bear on this difficult truth. Giving voice to the pain in our midst, our artists nonetheless say to all of it: the victory is not yours.
