Peace Be With You

Evening Mass in a Bangalore Church.
She looked different in that crowd. She was poor, they were rich. They were serious and she was smiling.
When it was time to wish peace each other …. she turned around, smiled and said “peace be with you”.
No one replied. No one wished her peace. No one wanted her peace.
Who Cares, uh ?

  • The parable of the widow with 2 coins.
    This reminds me of that.

  • Rich ppl are just like that, we are all accustomed to their lack of concern. We understand they must keep us all at sub human distance to sooth their exploitation of our labors and benefit from our misery with a clear conscience. We all know the truth, the rich just resent being reminded.
