Ecce Homo

Behold the man!

A caution for anyone who thinks the world is always just, or that people are basically good and will choose the innocent over the evil, or for leaders who think that the mob can be satisfied with just a little blood. If it worked that way, "the man" in the quote could have lived a peaceful life in Nazareth or for that matter, never needed to step into creation at all.

Sunday is coming. And at the most fundamental level of reality, it already has come and we live in its light. But for too many in too much of the world, it is Friday. A moment, then, to join with them in prayer and to lift them up.
