Wa Habibi - Good Friday

Artwork by Tarek Chemaly
The Good Friday hymn Wa Habibi (wa is how the dead are addressed and habibi is beloved - basically the Virgin Mary speaking to Jesus Christ after his death) was immortalized by the Fairouz version. Regarless of faith, rituals are what bind communities.
