Lent 37

Dear Jesus:
Please hit back.

When they smack you and call you names,
please set the example for our children
that no one should be spit upon or
degraded with name-calling.

When they pay money for your body,
let that money weigh them down to drowning
until they understand that no person's body
should be bought and sold like property.

When they hang you up for power's sake,
please fight back and demonstrate that
no man should have to take that sh**.

When they question you simply for being,
please sting them so severely with your words
that their tongues curl and are silenced.

This suffering for the sake of others
has set a crappy example.

Please hit back already.
