Passover, glazed donuts, and graduate school do not mix well. This is a fact that I encountered, for five consecutive years, when I was a graduate student working on my doctoral degree. Full appreciation of this physical law requires some background, so please bear with me for a paragraph or two.

As we come to Holy Week—the week which precedes Easter Sunday—there are many events upon which Christians focus: the Last Supper of Jesus with His apostles on Holy Thursday, His Passion (from the Latin “passio”, meaning “suffering”), His death from crucifixion, His entombment, and His resurrection early on Easter Sunday morning. Christians, of course, believe these events to be quite literal and quite historical, and Jesus’ resurrection is the very basis of our hope in life after physical death.

For more than 2000 years the Roman Catholic Church has had the crucifix—a figure of Jesus crucified on a cross---as the focal point on the altar for believers as we enter our basilicas, cathedrals, shrines, churches, or chapels.
