Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29
Matthew 21:1-11

by Brother Mark Brown, Guest Commentator on the Gospel of Matthew

Defy

We do not deny the reality of death or the degradation of suffering. But we do claim the victory of life over death, of light over darkness. And so we defy anything which would degrade our humanity.

– Br. Mark Brown, Society of Saint John the Evangelist
