  " Not by might and not by power but by my Spirit, says the Lord "    Zechariah 4:6

GOD'S CHOSEN PEOPLE CANNOT AFFORD THE LUXURY OF WAITING FOR BREAD TO RISE.  EATING UNLEAVENED BREAD ALLOWS THEM TO EAT ON THE RUN WHILE IN EXODUS, GOD'S LIBERATING JOURNEY OUT OF SLAVERY.  AS WE GATHER AT THE LORD'S TABLE, WE SHOULD NOT GET TOO COMFORTABLE IN OUR CHAIRS.  WE WHO LIVE IN THE LAND OF CONSUMERISM, OBSESSION WITH YOUTHFUL APPEARANCE, CELEBRITY WORSHIP, ADDICTION, AND MATERIAL INEQUITY MUST ALWAYS BE READY TO CAST OFF THESE SHACKLES OF SLAVERY AND SET OUT FOR gOD'S pROMISED LAND OF FREEDOM.

Pope Francis
                
                    Excerpts from his    
        Sunday homily  April 13, 2014

   "Am I like Judas? We have heard other names too: the disciples who understand nothing, who fell asleep while the Lord was suffering. Has my life fallen asleep? Or am I like the disciples, who did not realize what it was to betray Jesus? Or like that other disciple, who wanted to settle everything with a sword? Am I like them? Am I like Judas, who feigns love and then kisses the Master in order to hand him over, to betray him? Am I a traitor? Am I like those people in power who hastily summon a tribunal and seek false witnesses: am I like them? And when I do these things, if I do them, do I think that in this way I am saving the people?

   Am I like Pilate? When I see that the situation is difficult, do I wash my hands and dodge my responsibility, allowing people to be condemned – or condemning them myself?

   Am I like that crowd which was not sure whether they were at a religious meeting, a trial or a circus, and then chose Barabbas? For them it was all the same: it was more entertaining to humiliate Jesus.

   Am I like the soldiers who strike the Lord, spit on him, insult him, who find entertainment in humiliating him?

   Am I like the Cyrenean, who was returning from work, weary, yet was good enough to help the Lord carry his cross?

   Am I like those who walked by the cross and mocked Jesus: “He was so courageous! Let him come down from the cross and then we will believe in him!”. Mocking Jesus….

   Am I like those fearless women, and like the mother of Jesus, who were there, and who suffered in silence?

   Am I like Joseph, the hidden disciple, who lovingly carries the body of Jesus to give it burial?

   Am I like the two Marys, who remained at the Tomb, weeping and praying?

   Am I like those leaders who went the next day to Pilate and said, “Look, this man said that he was going to rise again. We cannot let another fraud take place!”, and who block life, who block the tomb, in order to maintain doctrine, lest life come forth?

   Where is my heart? Which of these persons am I like? May this question remain with us throughout the entire week.
