First, I would like to squelch any rumors about my having to borrow a Capuchin habit for today's event.  Yes, this is my solemn profession habit from 1972; it is admittedly in pristine condition, and although not quite saving it for this moment, I did want to be part of the brown wave that ripples across CTU today; furthermore, since the religious barb of the mendicants was both a choir robe as well as at the origin of the academic gown, it seems fitting in this conjunction of prayer and scholarship to don the capuche.

On Palm Sunday, the Sunday that begins Holy Week, and again on Good Friday, Catholic Christians read the passion narrative of Jesus - his arrest, trial, death, and burial. This year, as I pondered Luke's gospel, it struck me that we read all passion narratives only so far as Jesus' death and burial. Of course, it makes sense since Easter Sunday is still ahead of us, and we cannot go into celebratory mode too early. But, I thought it a bit odd to read only as far as the death and burial when we all know the end of the story.
