Monday in Holy Week ... all the images are draped in purple ... the Passion solemnly chanted ... everything just as it should be ...

The drama!

Taking time off social media for Holy Week? I have an idea - study the characters who surrounded Christ during his Passion. Look closely at the scoffers, the gossips, the liars, those whose expressions mirror our own denigration and contempt of others ... When they cover all the statues and pictures in church, pull up Hieronymus Bosch on your phone to help you understand what calumny, detraction, and scoffing look like. It always helps me when I feel all holier than thou.


  1. You just reminded me I have Fulton Sheen's "Characters of the Passion" - going to read it this week.

    1. I never read that or even knew of it - thanks for mentioning it, I will look for it.
