What happens when you put together:

a light box
a projector
black sand
stirring music from the Passion
an artist?

Something magnificent. Joe Castillo, the artist, presented the Passion of Christ story using these materials by drawing on a lightbox in sand using his fingertips. The images he constructed projected onto big screens in our church as he worked. Joe's digits slowly and methodically painted out scenes of the Garden of Gethsemane to the glorious Resurrection to the music from the Passion of the Christ.

His art set the solemn tone of Good Friday perfectly. Thank ye, Joe.
