What was once alive, once green, once bright, is now in these days dead, withered and dark.
There is only a faint hint of days long distant in the most recent of times.
What is it to succeed
and leave a legacy?
To overrun others, destroying them with lies, in order to have more, in order to cover up one’s sins?
Or to suffer rumours and lies that destroy one’s reputation and finances leaving one homeless?
This day, Jesus answered God’s call to submit himself to death, a torturous death, and to die.
Did Jesus succeed? Did Jesus destroy others, or did he allow others to try to destroy him, and respond with grace and forgiveness?
If more of the world knew Grace and lived it well, more people would succeed …
in bringing the basics of life to others with their sacrifices.
The world may seem dark, especially in these days when we remember that God died, and remained so, for three days.
There is only the reflection in our memories of the light that has guided our paths. But there will be a great light, that will shine in every darkness, and bring justice, restitution, and new life to those who are destroyed by others lies.
And for those who have destroyed with lies … may God have mercy on them.
