Jesus, Remember Me

Today is not a day for opining, for criticizing neo-cons or challenging the left, or any other such usual posting. It is a day in which we should all, I think, take as our model the good thief who, mindful of his sins, only turned to Jesus and begged for His mercy and companionship. Better than any words I could devise, here is one musical selection that invites us to contemplate the terribleness of the price by which our atonement was achieved, the exquisite Pie Jesu from Faure's Requiem, here sung by Barbara Bonney..
