The soldiers drive nails through Jesus’ hands and feet, nailing him to the cross.  A brutal and terrible way to die. Jesus who healed the sick, met with the poor, reached out to the vulnerable of society, young and old, those shunned and those exalted. He touched those who society values less.
Jesus taught us that religion is not about power plays or special groups but love and compassion for all.
Jesus challenged the religious and political elites . He showed a new way – how to live from the heart of God.  A place of deep peace, love and compassion.  Religious political and financial elites found this challenging and for this he was executed.
Where does our society today need to change?  Do we live and act out of love, or out of our egos? What would the world look like if we all lived out of our noble selves?
Love is not elitist
