The first Holy Week night was a movie, Dead Man Walking. It was not one The Mom would have chosen to watch, but yes, one she should have watched. It’s based on true life Sister Prejean, who was the first woman to be the "religious company" (or whatever you call it) of a murderer on Death Row. The movie made an excellent representation for both sides of the argument about capital punishment. And Sister Prejean was a beautiful example of Christ’s love. There was even a victory at the end, but we won’t spoil the story for you.

The murderer seemed so "ugly"… it was such an "appropo" scripture that Rob read to us at the end–the one from Isaiah that talks about how Messiah became so disfigured that people turned their heads away.

There was even an old "chorus" in the movie–just for us!

"Be not afraid,
I go before you always.
Come, follow Me–
And I will give you rest!"
