We are called to discern the difference between the divine and the demonic and unmask, name, and engage these demonic powers. It is the church’s business.
There is no reason be afraid of rising from the dead. There is no reason to fear the death-dealers. Whatever Jesus stood for. Whatever crucified Jesus for what he stood for, what Jesus stood for wins.
If I were the king of the world
I’ll tell you what I’d do,
I’d throw away the cars and the bars and the war,
and make sweet love to you.
That is what I think Jesus was declaring on Palm Sunday.
