We know better how to deal with a murderer or a terrorist than we know how to accept the Prince of Peace who rides into our lives not on the power of white stallion but on the simplicity of a donkey. Christ chose the way of peace, of love, of forgiveness in a world far more violent and malevolent than ours. I need to remind myself more often that His Way is the way, the ultimate source of peace, love, justice, and mercy. And it is His Way that triumphs over ridicule, rejection, torture and death. Do I have that courage?
