Jesus forgive us all

My sister ran across this image at the Philadelphia Art Museum. There is holy Mary, fainting from the pain. There is sinner Magdalene, clinging to the cross.

A medieval Italian painter made this in the 1330s. There at the foot of the cross, a Jew, a Muslim, and a Christian all gamble for Christ’s clothes, as he bleeds to death above.

Jesus forgive us all.
