Quote of the Day (W.H. Auden, on Good Friday)

“Christmas and Easter can be subjects for poetry, but Good Friday, like Auschwitz, cannot. The reality is so horrible it is not surprising that people should have found it a stumbling block to faith.” —British poet W.H. Auden (1907-1973), A Certain World: A Commonplace Book (1970)
