Is Gibson's Passion a kind of Rorschach Ink Blot for our time, whose interpretation tells more about the viewer than the viewed? Check out Uri Klein's interesting take in Tel Aviv's Haaretz, and altar boy Joe Queenan's pieties in the U.K. Guardian (thanks to Pat Sweeney for the latter).

With Catholics like Joe Queenan, who needs enemies? The violence of this film did not touch me - having been raised on a farm that butchered animals, I've seen blood. I don't see "the man", I see "the Lamb."

Anne Catherine Emmerich was born in Flamschen (near Coesfeld), Westphalia. Her family lived a very humble life (dirt poor). She had 4 months of schooling. She eventually entered a convent in Dulmen. Klemens Brentano wrote down her visions shortly before she died. Venerable Anna never left Westphalia and it is doubtful that she ever saw a Jew.
