Holy Week items
On Palm Sunday many churchgoers hold palms during the service. I’m used to seeing people weave them into large crosses. Here are two smaller (East African?) designs that I saw for the first time.
“Enjoy the Silence: Triduum, sexual abuse, and the disappearance of the crucified”
It is truly difficult to hear the continued reports of children raped by priests and not be struck by the presence of the Crucified One there. But this presence is deniedâ€”â€œI do not know the man!â€â€”each and every time church leaders and members alike remain silent or utter words of defensiveness that embarrassingly fill nearly every news story or ecclesial statement covering the abuse.
“Who’d win in a wrestling match, Lemmy or God?”
Not sure about the theology here:
(Very much looking forward to the Lemmy documentary.)
