Lucia Death on the Cross


About 1983 years ago, Our Lord allowed Himself to be nailed to a cross and killed by human beings. All our sins across time; past, present and future contributed to His agony.

I normally watch the film, The Passion of the Christ, on this day to help me be with Him across time and space, so that I really appreciate what He has done and to help me love Him more. It doesn't seem to be a mere intellectual exercise as I think what must happen is that my reaching towards Him results in His Grace pouring down to really connect me to that event. I can't really explain it better than that, except that something happens that transcends emotion and intellect.

I'm a bit late with this post as tradition holds that Our Lord died at 3pm.

I find it very hard to watch as well, Fletch. I'm quite sensitive to anything brutal or gory on the screen (I can get full on stress migraines), so it took me a few years with repeated attempts to watch the whole film, which I had to do in segments and then take time to recover from the experience. I still close my eyes or look away for good parts of it.

On a lighter note, here is a hilarious Passover movie, "Moses Gets Facebook".

Enjoy, and Happy Easter
