Today's Homily

In those days

when we feared the truth

not for ignorance of it within ourselves

but for the dangers posed

by speaking aloud against the prejudices

of masses too well-tutored in lies and hatred,

we kept our secrets and hid among the crowds,

assuming their rabid colorations, spewing

the same evil venom, spreading

all the same lies, pretending

that the past was better than the present,

that regression to our yesterdays,

the years gone by, could create

for us anew that Eden we all lost,

that sanctuary from our knowledge

of the world, of evil; and,

our regained ignorance would restore

the bliss we lost with our innocence.

That, the biggest lie,

feeds our growing xenophobia --

hastens humanity's ultimate demise.

Time does not flow backwards

in this universe; and there is

no "us versus them" --

we are all crowded here together

on this fragile planet,

all in this together.

We must be kind, and love one another,

or die.
