As the sun sets on this Easter day, please continue to pray for Terri Schiavo, who nears death, and her grieving family.

Of course, the point of Easter is that all of us have the hope of spending eternity with an all-loving, all-forgiving God, and that is joyful news indeed. But there is no doubt that here, on the human plane, there are some very heavy hearts tonight -- and not only in Florida -- as we come to terms with the fact that Terri is going to die, and that she will have done so without all the protections (or even the comfort) provided to animals or convicted killers.

Even so, some good is bound to emerge even from this most tragic and heartwrenching situation -- that, too, is the message of Easter: That good will always, and ultimately, triumph. As for the good in this situation, let us be sure to look for it -- and do out part to bring it about.
