Holy Saturday--rest on the journey
A quiet day at home: preparing homilies for the Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday. This morning's papers had mixed coverage of Good Friday's Way of the Cross: Le Droit had a full cover page photo which was fine except for the headline, "L'Eglise doit mourir pour renaitre" ("The Church needs to die to be reborn"). There was another large photo on page 3, with a story linking all kinds of stories about the church without much discernmentheadline on. The Ottawa Sun had a captioned colour photo on p. 2, but the Ottawa Citizen buried the story as an add-on to the Tamil demonstration. Interesting how the same reality can provoke such diverse coverage.
