All this translates in trying to salvage the final days of Lent and the Triduum, giving it a final push.

Brejcha, the subject of a new video documentary, credited People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) as an example of the "strange bedfellows" that have filed friend-of-the-court briefs in favor of Daleiden.
