The Energizer Pope

Roman Catholic services during Holy Week are long, long, long. It starts this this Sunday, Palm Sunday, with the gospel that tells the entire story of the passion of Christ. It's so long that it's one of the few times we're asked to sit down during the gospel reading.

Then there's Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Saturday services that can go on for three hours! They are all very moving in their own way, but long, long, long.

Pope John Paul II plans to do them all. Or so says a report on catholic.net
Here's the article.
