Memorial of Saint John de Brébeuf and Saint Isaac Jogues

Yes, I tell you, this generation will be charged with their blood!
Woe to you, scholars of the law!
You have taken away the key of knowledge.
You yourselves did not enter and you stopped those trying to enter
Luke 11:51-52

The scribes and Pharisees didn't like this at all, they became quite hostile in fact. Their sole purpose now was to destroy Jesus. And Jesus in his own beautiful way has shown the world the power of evil in high places.This happened two thousand years ago, but we too can identify with this.

Haven't we seen people assasinated that would have done good for our world. Just as we have seen people assasinated that would have created a world of evil. This doesn't change the fact that Jesus addressed this very thing already.

With this on record for our own good, we continue to to kill off any knowledge. We attempt to stop faith and any knowledge of it. We hide behind a curtain of secrecy. Lest people find out how truly evil we have become.

In Jesus' time he went after them to expose the truth of their ways, so if we did this with those of power we can be assured of marytyrdome. Just like Jesus, when we speak loudly of the truth of our ways, we turn against those who dare to speak the truth. Unfortunately this encompasses everyone who lives and breathes. So how do we turn a negative world into a positive one, when we hide in the shadow of evil? From the looks of things and all the strife, disease, poverty, and war we could make a difference in this world if only we stop being selfish and start being more honest.
