When we return from our trip of the last week, a postcard from our friends John and Andre is waiting for us. They're visiting the Holy Land.
It is such an irony. The Holy Land has such a long history of being drenched in blood.
The card they've sent shows Caravaggio's "Crucifixion of St. Peter," with a photo of a Palestinian man wounded by Israeli settlers while harvesting olives on the West Bank in October 2006 superimposed over the crucifixion scene.
