Good Friday around the world

Christians mark Good Friday around the world. At the Vatican the new Pontiff Pope Francis threw himself on the floor of St. Peter's Basically in prayer. In Southern Germany thousands watch the re-enactment of Jesus' walk to his death. Later they stand witness as Christ is nailed to a cross. Good Friday signifies the official beginning of Easter, which symbolizes the central Christian belief that death does not signify the end but a new beginning. In New York thousands of worshipers observe Good Friday with a procession over the Brooklyn Bridge. In Jerusalem, members of the clergy carry a statue of Jesus Christ. They hold a service at the place where they believe Christ was buried. In Mexico crowds of Roman Catholics gather to watch the annual Processions of the Flagellants and the Crucified. The faithful show their piety by hitting themselves -- its a way to share the pain that Jesus suffered on the cross.

The happy three brothers - video and video script

There were three brothers.
They each decided to find a precious treasure and meet a year later.
One year later, the three brothers gathered again.
They each boasted about the treasure they had found.
The oldest brother brought a telescope.
"I found a telescope which can see far away."
The second brother brought a flying carpet.
"I found a flying carpet that can go anywhere."
The third brother said.
"I found an apple that cures all diseases."
The brothers were amazed at the treasures they found.
"Let's see what we can do with our treasures now."
The brothers all nodded.
The oldest brother looked through his telescope and saw a palace in the distance.
A princess was lying in bed sick.
The second opened his carpet and said.
"Let's ride this carpet and go to the palace."
The three brothers went to the palace on the flying carpet to save the sick princess.
The three brothers met the king and told him why they had come.
The king said.
"How commendable. If you cure the princess, I will let one of you marry the princess."
The youngest brother gave the princess the apple he found.
The princess had been sick for a long time, but with one bite of the apple, she was cured.
The king hugged the princess with joy.
"Okay, as promised, one of you can marry the princess."
The brothers each wanted the other the marry the princess.
No matter how pretty and princess was, the brothers thought their loyalty was more important.
The king was moved and gave them gold and silver and high positions.
The three brothers lived happily ever after.
