Allow me to share it with you in today's post:
Still from the movie The Passion of the Christ
MESSIAH of the MARKETPLACE
I simply argue that the cross be raised
again at the centre of the marketplace
as well as on the steeple of the church...
That Jesus was not crucified in a cathedral
between two candles, but on
A CROSS BETWEEN TWO THIEVES;
ON THE TOWN GARBAGE HEAP;
AT A CROSSROAD SO COSMOPOLITAN
they had to write his title in Hebrew
and Latin and in Greek; at the kind of place
where CYNICS talk smut, THIEVES curse
and SOLDIERS gamble. Because that is where
he died. And that is what he died about...
that is where churchmen SHOULD BE
and what churchmen SHOULD BE ABOUT.
