Can’t you hear Jesus saying to all the baptized, down through the hallway of time, “Welcome to the beautiful struggle. Welcome to the joyful rebellion. Don’t be surprised if the world hates you. I have come to bring a sword, not to be nice. They killed me because of love and truth. They killed Alban, back in England, because he thought a Christian should protect the vulnerable. They killed Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in Memphis for being nonviolent and wanting a living wage for the poor.” What would Jesus say to us now? I think it would be something like, “What has love caused you to risk?”

Matthew 10:34




¿No oyes a Jesús decir a todos los bautizados, a través del pasillo del tiempo, “Bienvenidos a la bella lucha. Bienvenidos a la alegre rebelión. No se sorprendan si el mundo los odia. No crean que he venido a traer paz a la tierra. No vine a traer paz, sino espada. Me mataron por amor y verdad. Mataron a Alban, en Inglaterra, porque pensó que un cristiano debería proteger a los vulnerables. Mataron al Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. en Memphis por no ser violento y querer un salario digno para los pobres ”. ¿Qué nos diría Jesús ahora? Creo que sería algo como, “¿Qué te ha hecho arriesgar el amor?”

Mateo 10:34
