Even when they call us mad, when they call us subversives and communists and all the epithets they put on us, we know we only preach the subversive witness of the Beatitudes, which have turned everything upside down.~ Archbishop Oscar Romero ~
an advocate for the poor and marginalized,
who was assassinated thirty years ago
while giving Mass in El Salvador
"...the subversive witness of the Beatitudes, which have turned everything upside down."
On Easter, SO and I were talking about the significance of the crucifixion and resurrection. There is so much more to the message than just the obvious. Everything turned upside down.
God said, "Enough. Enough blood sacrifice. Love trumps everything. Look...I'll show you." Jesus's life up to that point gave us all the instruction we need.
...the poor in spirit
...they who mourn
...they who hunger and thirst for righteousness
...the pure of heart
...they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness.
I guess it is time for me to get over myself and be...blessed.
