"Thy will be done"
Despite my sister nagging me to death.
I kept postponing it.
I felt I needed to condition myself.
But I finally watched "The Passion of the Christ."
I have always been the least skirmish one in this family. But this film gripped me.
I had to cover my eyes during the horrific scenes.
It was heart wrenching.
I still vividly remember when I visited Jerusalem.
5 days pilgrimage to the Holy Land. March 2000.
Walking through the Garden of Gethsemane.
Roaming the narrow steps of the Via Dolorosa.
Then finally climbing to the top of Golgotha.
The very spot where Jesus Christ was crucified.
That trip is etched in my soul forever.
This film made it all the more poignant for me.
