Here are some thorns from some trees on our property. I think they are mesquite trees. They puncture tractor tires a lot, and occupy most of my tractor maintenance time. They hurt when they penetrate one's flesh. I can't imagine what a crown of these would feel like.
I put them on Christ.
We do not subject our children, the parishioners, the priest, or ourselves to undue suffering by taking our children to the vigil Mass. We take them to Mass on Easter Sunday after getting them hopped up on chocolate. Watch out for that hypoglycemic swing!
I wish you all a Blessed Easter Week
