In some church traditions all of the altar coverings and decorations are removed after the Eucharist is celebrated on Maundy Thursday. Psalm 22 is sometimes either read or sung while the altar paraments are being removed. Since the altar in these traditions symbolize the Christ, the "stripping of the altar" symbolizes the abandonment of Jesus by his disciples and the stripping of Jesus by the soldiers prior to his crucifixion. This, like the darkness often incorporated into a Good Friday service, represents the humiliation of Jesus and the consequences of sin as a preparation for the celebration of new life and hope that is to come on Resurrection Day. Some churches only leave the altar bare until the Good Friday Service, when the normal coverings are replaced with black.
Unlike a few of the movies on this list, figuring out The Babadook isn't that difficult—provided you keep up with the sudden change in perspective in the final act. For much of its running time, this indie horror hit looks and feels like a particularly satisfying supernatural home invasion picture, with the titular nasty creature tormenting a single mother (Essie Davis) and her six-year-old son (Noah Wiseman) after he's inadvertently summoned through the reading of a disturbing children's book. But there's more going on beneath the surface. In the film's closing scenes, after the Babadook has possessed Davis' character and she tries to strangle her son, he draws it out of her with a tender expression of love—at which point the Babadook flees into the basement, where she's stored all mementos of her husband since his death.
That's when we realize the creature wasn't supernatural at all—it was her years of repressed grief, which had grown so powerful it threatened to destroy the lives of everything it touched. In a perfect blend of heartwarming and gross, The Babadook 's closing moments show mother and son gathering a bowl of worms, which Davis takes into the basement to feed the vanquished beast—tacitly acknowledging that she'll always carry it with her, and honor its place in her heart.
Such pure and heavenly love was depicted by William Shakespeare in the play "Romeo and Juliet". This literary creation became the classics of love stories. It became the ABC of love, which is quoted by sweethearts all over the world. It is a moving and pathetic story of the tragic love, which doesn't leave anyone indifferent. It is a play filled with inimitable soliloquies in which lovers' vows sound like music, where romantic, and passionate love seems to break down all the barriers, and lovers seem to be happy together in spite of all hindrances.
