DID YOU HEAR SAUL OF TARSUS? DID YOU?

FROM A MARXIST HINDU

TO HIS CATHOLIC FRIENDS

He could speak Aramaic
Jesus’ mother tongue;
He spoke Latin,
The language of power and authority
Of the Roman Empire;
He spoke Hebrew,
The language of proud ancestry.
And yet, and yet, and yet …
When he discovered the meaning of his life,
He preached in koine Greek,
A lingua franca,
A practical communication tool
To transmit Jesus’ message
And reach thousands.

Did you hear Saul of Tarsus? Did you?

Peter and others were in favour of
CULTURAL PURITY
For all those who wanted to
Hear and live Jesus’ message.
CLOSE ALL CULTURE DOORS AND WINDOWS!

Saul of Tarsus decided to champion
MISCEGENATION.
Or metissage if you prefer.

Did you hear Saul of Tarsus? Did you?

Do you hear him now? Do you?
Hear the message of liberation theology;
Hear the outright denunciation of
NEOLIBERAL CAPITALISM,
Of the financialization of world economy,
Of CASINO-ECONOMY.

Hear the true message of love,
Not the love for the dung of the devil;
Hear the message of
OPEN DOOR CULTURE;
Hear the message of justice and freedom;
Hear the message of sharing.

Saul of Tarsus still talks to us
With the voice of Pope Francis
But we don’t hear.
We prefer our comfort zone,
Our prejudice and ignorance.
Saul of Tarsus tells us
BRAHMA, GOD, BONDIE, ALLAH
Are ONE
But we don’t hear.
We prefer our comfort zone,
Our prejudice and ignorance.

O Lord! What a waste!
