“He [Jesus] was brought down by law and order allied with religion, which is always a deadly mix.”

 

God is forever on the side of those who suffer. God is forever on the side of life. God is forever on the side of hope.

 

If the resurrection is real, death’s hold is broken. There is a truth and human existence that cannot be contained in a tomb. It is possible to live lightly, even in the face of death — not by becoming hard and strong, but through a confident perseverance. Because cynicism is the failure of patience. Because Good Friday does not have the final word.
