Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday - Tonight our church is gathering to celebrate the last supper, which Jesus had with his disciples before his arrest and crucifixion. if you’ve ever wondered what it is, here is an excerpt i found on-line…

that evening they met in an upper room of a house in jerusalem to celebrate the passover. Jesus and the other disciples were jewish and the passover was the most holy event in the jewish calendar, commemorating the saving acts of God in the life of the hebrew people and, most specifically, remembering the release of the people of israel from captivity by pharaoh in egypt. on passover the hebrew people share the meal and tell the story of their salvation by God as God sent a series of plagues on the egyptians, which finally convinced pharaoh to release the people.

after dinner Jesus performed a new ritual, offering each of the disciples bread: “take, eat; this is my body”—and a cup: “this is my blood.” following this, they sang a hymn and left jerusalem to pass the night on the mount of olives, in the garden of gethsemane. we will remember this new ritual, which is our sacrament of the Lord’s supper, by our communion service.

the name “Maundy Thursday” comes from the latin word “mandatum” which means “commandment,” as Jesus gave us all a new commandment on that night that people should love one another even as Christ loves them (John 13:34-35). that spirit led the ruling monarch in great britain to give alms to poor people on the thursday before easter. these gifts were called “royal maundy,” hence the name, Maundy Thursday.

so now you know… Maundy Thursday

Paul Scofield Dies at 68

Paul Scofield Dies at 68 - Academy Award-winning British actor Paul Scofield passed away Wednesday, March 19, of leukemia. He was 68. Paul Scofield’s agent, Rosalind Chatto, said the acclaimed actor died peacefully at a hospital near his home in Balcombe, Sussex, on Wednesday. He had been battling leukemia for some years. “He had leukemia and had not been well for some time,” Chatto told Reuters.

Paul Scofield is best known for his portrayal of Sir Thomas More, the Catholic martyr who chose to be executed at King Henry VIII’s order rather than betray his conscience, in the 1967 film “A Man for All Seasons.”

That role earned
Paul Scofield a BAFTA and an Academy Award for Best Actor.

Paul Scofield only appeared in some 30 films and focused on classical theater. He was critically praised for his roles in diverse theatrical productions such as the musical “Expresso Bongo” (1958), the comedy “Staircase” (1966) and numerous plays by William Shakespeare.

British paper The Telegraph reports that a 2004 survey of actors of the Royal Shakespeare Company named his 1962 depiction of King Lear as the greatest Shakespearian performance ever.

Among those who had voted were Sir Ian McKellen, Donald Sinden, Janet Suzman, Ian Richardson, Sir Antony Sher and Corin Redgrave. Upon learning of the accolade,
Paul Scofield said he was “overwhelmed, astonished and delighted.”

“Of the 10 greatest moments in the theatre, eight are
Paul Scofield’s,” actor Richard Burton once said.
Though he shied away from Hollywood and celebrity,
Paul Scofield was nominated for an Academy Award once more in 1994, for his supporting role in the Robert Redford directed and produced film “Quiz Show.”

Not even such grand ceremonies lured him to Tinseltown, as he was much more fascinated with his work with the Royal Shakespeare Company at Stratford-on-Avon. He was also known as a very private person.

“I never liked the idea of going to live or work in California,” he said. “Indeed, I've never been there, not even to collect my Oscar, because we were rehearsing at Stratford.”

Paul Scofield lived with his wife in a cottage in the Sussex countryside south of London, according to Reuters. They had a son and daughter, who both became teachers.

And that's latest sad news is Paul Scofield Dies at 68.

Audrina Patridge Naked Pictures

Audrina Patridge Naked Pictures - God-given right to see the photos of Audrina Patridge naked. She sent these to Playboy when she was 19. They weren’t run. Playboy sent her a letter that read “It’s not that your body’s not hot. It’s that your eyes are weird.”

I’m kidding.

She released the following statement:

“I took these photos years ago when I was just out of high school and beginning to model. I was young and very trusting of others and I didn’t know to protect myself. It is a lesson learned, for myself, and hopefully for the young girls who look up to me.”

What’s interesting to me is that these younger girls are willing to own up to it and apologize when their bare naked tits hit the web, but the older folks (Kristin Davis, anyone?) are all deny, deny, deny.

Anyway, after the jump, the naked photos of Audrina Patridge from her Playboy submission. I’ll be getting the cease and desist in T minus two hours, so save them to your computer while you can.

And that's Audrina Patridge Naked Pictures
