Commentary on the Gospel of

Fr. JCR Garcia Paredes


When we see tyranny and cruelty we are often hard put to find adequate words:  we say it is ‘inhuman’.  But the still sadder reality is that it is all too human.  Many animals kill and eat one another but not for power.  They kill to save-off hunger but they do not drop bombs on cities and devote their time and energy to devising ever more sophisticated weapons of mass destruction.  Nor do they poison one another’s minds with lies and propaganda.  We say “Those people are fighting like animals!”  Would to God we fought only like animals!  We are the most dangerous species in the world.  And yet, “the Word became flesh and lived among us.”
