Good Friday

The Corriere della Sera has a slideshow of Holy Week observances from around the world. Just follow the link on the linked page. Warning - some of the content from the Philipine is not for the squeamish.

The Telegraph has an article about the co-incidence of Good Friday with the 25th of March.

And from today's liturgy...
What more could I have done for you.
I planted you as my fairest vine,
but you yielded only bitterness:
when I was thirsty you gave me vinegar to drink,
and you pierced your Saviour with a lance.
How can something so terrible be so beautiful?
