A Passion Play for 2005

A Play of Life and Death
The Passion Play which has been exhibiting on the pages of our newspapers and on the electronic screens of our world, during this Passion Week of 2005, has been truly extraordinary. Today is Maundy Thursday, the day of the Last Supper. Tomorrow comes Good Friday, the day of our Lord’s death. What has the judicial system of Caesar allowed to unravel before our eyes? What is to pass? An elderly mother is prevented by Caesar's armed officers, from placing a wet, cool cloth upon the parched lips of her dying daughter. What do our children learn? What price will we pay? Have we watched this scene before?
