Semana Santa

I'm not sure what to make theologically of the strong emphasis placed on Jesus' passion and suffering and the almost after-thought status that the Easter resurrection itself gets here in rural Bolivia. But I know that carrying the cross between stations (it was only a few dozen yards probably -- but it was heavier than I thought so my walking speed was one of efficacy rather than meditation) and seeing the gathered community alight with velas during the Vigil are memories I won't soon forget.
