STANEK COLUMN: Grateful for the good side of the Internet

Clergy Corner: Jesus is powerful enough

Crucifixion was a most shameful way to die. The condemned individual was stripped of both clothing and dignity, nailed to a wooden cross, and left there to die slowly over the course of hours or days. It was an execution reserved for only the very worst of criminals.
