Weekly Smorgasbord: Holy Week Edition

I haven't done a ton of blog reading this week, but these stood out! Enjoy!




Moore to the Point – Why the Insomnia of Jesus Matters to Us

Posted: 23 Apr 2011 08:11 PM PDT

One of THE best things I've read in a long time. A few of my favorite exercpts:

- "Danger doesn't keep Jesus awake; the judgment of God does."

- "I lose sleep quite often over the things Jesus tells me I should not worry about: my life, my possessions, my future. Such is not of the Spirit."

- "The next time you find yourself unable to sleep due to worry, ask whether you're in the Galilee waters or the Gethsemane garden. Ask yourself whether your wakefulness is of the weakening flesh or the awakening Spirit."

Faithful Crucify Themselves in Philippines - At least 24 nailed to crosses

I'm VERY glad that "the Catholic Church officially frowns on such displays....one local archbishop called them an "imperfect imitation with doubtful theological and social significance."" I think remembering the Lord's Passion by taking Communion is really the way to go. But that's just my opinion.

This is one of my new favorite blogs. Katie's struggles are so real and so hard, but she chooses to walk in the path of our Savior and it's truly inspiring!

My friend Ashley shared some information about what a crucifixion actually entailed. Really interesting and enough to put you in a very somber mood before rejoicing tomorrow.
Anything good that I missed?
