I guess it's best to say that Passover and Easter mean that, in the face of death and war and disasters, there's hope for me, and for you, and for the whole world.

It is the only time of year that two major religions celebrate holidays of real significance. It's a lovely feeling.

For the world, it's the begining of the Kingdom that will not end - the fullness of life.

"When you make a holy day for God, you find that you've made a holiday for men." G.K. Chesterton

Passover and the Passover of Jesus - not an ancient event only, but the hope of the world.

War is a path to getting us what we want. Give up want and you have the path to peace. My lesson: Good Friday = The End of War.
