Blast from the Past(or)

29th Sunday in Ordinary Time

 

                  'Give this man all the power he needs to pass the things he needs to pass.' That was an Academy Award-winning actress postulating on the President of the United States at a fundraiser last week. You've got to give her an 'A' for her enthusiasm. But her grasp of history, American civics, and for our purposes, Christianity, might benefit from some tutoring. Even movie stars can blur the line between God and Caesar. This is the warning Jesus poses for us today. Of the two levels of legitimate authority, namely God and the state, we remember that we only have one Master. In our current time, civil authority has inserted itself in the place of God. It seeks to change the meaning of words (marriage), dehumanize the marginalized and even declare infanticide as a choice protected by law. When these violations of human nature and reason enter into public life, we are obliged to oppose them! Caesar will accuse us of racism, fear-mongering, homophobia or even being an enemy of the state, but our primary allegiance is to God. You may hear those around you say, 'we have no king but Caesar.' This is an old refrain for those who follow what is popular. But we Christians render to Caesar what is his and give to God what is His. Give this man all the power he needs.....? In the midst of this frightening concept, let us take heart from the Gospel challenge of Jesus Christ.
