Dan, thanks for creating this page of resources and letting me have access to it. Lots of great stuff. This Sunday 3/29 reflection question concerning “Jesus Barabbas” and the mystery behind what he did after being released are polar opposites. This is logical considering what he had just witnessed. Likewise, today’s Gospel 3/26 has Jesus calling people “liars.” He also called people “blind guides, fools, frauds” and “whitewashed tombs.” To quote the Laudate reflection for today, Jesus was blunt and was asking for trouble. Like the people of his time, our response should be one of polar opposites. My response is usually one of moderation and lukewarm. While usually a logical strategy to the physical world, what an illogical response to what counts!
