Why priests are fools…

Jesus










We are fools…
because we rather follow a humble carpenter
than follow the path of leaders
encouraging immorality…

We are fools…
because we take the lead
in calling for the end of killings…

We are fools…
because we say NO to killings
of more than 20,000 deaths…

We are fools…
because we are not afraid
even with bullets or deaths…

We are fools…
because we rather obey God
than the madness of any tyrant…

We are fools…
because we would rather remain silent
and yet our message is becoming louder than any of his dirty words…

We are fools…
because our eyes are open
encouraging others to see the evildoings of our leaders…

We are fools…
because we challenge wrong systems
instead of sleeping with the enemy…

We are fools…
because we immerse ourselves with the people on the streets
rather than snatch their lives without mercy…

We are fools…
because we resist violence
and demand justice…
