Holy Week

We’ve left our Spanish sunshine behind, but though it’s chilly, this morning we’re enjoying unexpectedly bright rays on the Baltic. Yesterday morning was very foggy, which had its own charm. I scouted a nice photo op of pussy willow and tiled roof mit fog, but the camera stayed behind with el Guapo, so it will have to remain a word picture.

Ninja has been excited to find out what Easter is like in Germany. While we learn about local customs,  I’m thinking about ways to bring the story more vividly to mind. My oldest daughter (we’ll call her Liebling) acted in a few of the videos of the life of Jesus Christ that have been made over the last couple of years by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and it turns out that she was in the video that best fits today, the Triumphal Entry. I link to it here, so you can start your Holy Week off thinking about that short ride. The entire collection of the videos of the life of Christ is here. And I offer, though I can’t really pronounce, the German phrase for enjoy: Viel Vergnuegen.

  1. I looked for your Liebling…. where is she in that crowd? I’m glad you get to visit, it’s nice to see them in their element. Give her a hug for me.

    • Well, she was right in the front for some of the filming, but that may have ended up “on the the cutting room floor,” as they say. She says she can still hear her voice in the crowd. I like to think that we were there, with the angels, adding our Hosannahs to those of the Jerusalem crowd….
