We are addicts to religious heroin with no integrity or moral fibre.
We enjoy just another form of self-centred hedonism.
Today (Good Friday) we have murdered God.
We have obliterated our hope.
The Christian three day quick fix of Easter Sunday is a distortion of the challenge that awaits the courageous.
Easter is a metaphor more than a chronological sequence.
The truth and the reality is that we allow the impoverished to perish while we get high on Easter Mass as though it were all sorted.
Nothing is sorted until with grace and resolve we set out to sort it.
We live awaiting resurrection.
We abide in a seemingly endless Holy Saturday.
The time presses us to make our faith real and to actually inaugurate a new world order - the resurrection society.
It's time to get off our backsides, off our knees, to vacate our altars and our vestments and to become tireless workers to roll the stone away.
