Following in the Footsteps of Our Lord

A touching email from LifeSiteNews:
Dear Readers,

Please accept our heartfelt wishes for a joyous and blessed Easter. Apart from emergency broadcasts there will be no news reports for Good Friday or Easter Monday.

As we contemplate the events of Our Lord's passion this weekend we cannot help but see the comparison in the suffering and impending death of the 41-year-old disabled Florida woman Terri Schiavo. She, as He did, suffers during Holy Week, is a silent victim, and thirsting with guards stopping all that would come to her aid. Condemned to death by today's robed high-priests in the judiciary, and betrayed by one who should have been her beloved husband, Terri shares the condemnation and betrayal of Our Lord. During Our Lord's death His mother Mary watched helpless and praying, Terri's parents Bob and Mary Schindler watch and pray as their daughter follows in His Way of the Cross.
