the cross. I still remember there was a shot showing Jesus¡¦ painful look as

forgive them; for they know not what they do." (Lk. 23:34 ) I was cut to the

heart by this prayer and my tears came out as much as it can be. I accepted

Jesus¡¦ love and forgiveness deep down in my heart. Praise God! He saved me by

this unusual means and through this unexpected incident. (Via email 8/13/00)
