Holy Wednesday, indeed: there’s so much random faith-related news on this hump day, the only way I can do it justice it to give you a top 5 list:
- Day of remembrance: 1 year after Gulf oil disaster (AP)
- Charter review will look at Philadelphia abuse situation, bishop says (Catholic News Service)
- Obama’s confession of faith (GetReligion)
- Lady Gaga commemorates Judas a few days before Easter (Chicago Tribune’s Seeker blog)
- In honor of 4/20, Christian perspectives on smoking pot (Houston Chronicle’s Belief blog)
See what I mean? Plus, of course Holy Week is a busy time for religion reporters professionally — stay tuned for a couple of Religion News Service pieces from me — but also personally (especially for those of us attempting to pack up a kid and dog for some cross-country holiday traveling).
