Carol Platt Liebau: It's finished.

Thursday, March 24, 2005

It's finished.

It looks like the fight to save Terri Schiavo has failed. Now there is nothing else to do but pray -- and we know that the Holy Spirit is there at Terri's bedside.

We can also reflect upon what went wrong. Theologically, we are duty bound to oppose the wrong with all our might, and perhaps that isn't most effectively done once a crisis arises, but before. There's some serious thinking that must transpire.

God bless Terri Schiavo and the Schindlers -- yes, and Michael Schiavo. If he has in good conscience tried to do what he believes to be best, he is deserving of our sympathy, as he has suffered a lot, too. If he has not acted in accordance with the dictates of conscience, then he needs our prayers even more than before.

I share your grief, Carol, and your prayer. This Friday reminds me more and more of that first Good Friday so long ago. My hope is in the thought that Sunday's coming, for Teri, and for this nation.
