Well, I am not confident in how well I led our discussion on the Crucifixion. I wasn't very organized, there was no linear progression. And I know it's because it's like asking me to talk about why I love Brian, or why I care about my dad's opinion. The more something matters to me, the more I fumble my words. Tonight I fumbled a lot.

But guys - Psalm 22 and Isaiah 53 and the image of the soldiers mocking Jesus and His resolve - it's all so poetic and beautiful. It's the stuff that inspires art, friends.

That's what's on my mind tonight.

Good night.

I thought you did a great job--- I didn't notice any fumbling :)

I agree!! And this was by far our most "intimidating" segment. And there are no words really for it. Your comparison with how do you love Brian, etc. was excellent. The big things are just beyond words.

I think one of the things that surprised me most about the movie "The Passion", was how long the actual day was for Christ.

That I was actually relieved by the time they started nailing Him to the cross.

Strange statement, I know.

But that meant things were almost...over.

I had never really given credence to the fact that the entire day had been torture for Him. And oh, how I had never given thought to Mary having to watch...
