Toon 3/25/05 Good Friday-Terri Schiavo 4

For a continuing and riveting on the scene report from Texas to the Hospice in Florida, visit the blog of my friend Becki Snow (aka The Question Fairy.)
Please email Becki's friend Jacqueline (who's in daily contact with Becki) and tell her to tell Becki that her week long hunger strike is over. They've both done a great job, and now it's time to celebrate Christ' victory by coming back to life again.
Here's today's cartoon-

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, 'Woman, this is your son.' Then to the disciple he said, 'This is your mother.' And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.
After this, Jesus knew that everything had now been completed and, so that the scripture should be completely fulfilled, he said: I am thirsty. A jar full of sour wine* stood there; so, putting a sponge soaked in the wine on a hyssop stick, they held it up to his mouth. After Jesus had taken the wine he said, 'It is fulfilled'; and bowing his head he gave up his spirit.
-John 19:25-30 The New Jerusalem Bible
