the folly of the cross

The Gospel confounds. The Gospel enrages. The Gospel inspires. If we choose to continue following the Gospel, we will continue confounding the world.

And yes, we just might be crucified. But, as Dorothy Day once wrote, “The most effective action we can take is to try to conform our lives to the folly of the cross.”

Which, I have been thinking, might be my new (and permanent) political ideology – the folly of the cross.
