Cancel “Cancel Culture”!

Wednesday of Holy Week

Last night at the Chrism Mass Bishop Zurek literally threw down his mask and doubled-down on his Cancel “Cancel Culture” theme for Holy Week. The only difference from his Palm/ Passion Sunday Homily in regards to this topic was the addition of WOKE. My intention is not to defend these ideologies, for to do that would simply be “canceling cancel ‘Cancel Culture'”; which would lead to an endless cycle in which we simply avoid taking on what should be the central focus of this special time.

I gave my back to those who beat me,

    my cheeks to those who plucked my beard;

My face I did not shield

    from buffets and spitting.

Is 50:6

R.    (14c)  Lord, in your great love, answer me.

For your sake I bear insult,

    and shame covers my face.

I have become an outcast to my brothers,

    a stranger to my mother’s sons,

because zeal for your house consumes me,

    and the insults of those who blaspheme you fall upon me.

Ps 69:8-10

Hail to you, our King, obedient to the Father;

you were led to your crucifixion like a gentle lamb to the slaughter.

Verse Before Today’s Gospel

“Amen, I say to you, one of you will betray me.”

Mt 26: 21

My prayer for today is that I take up my cross and follow Christ instead of wasting time this Holy Week fearing or fighting ideologies with ideologies.
