Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,
bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.
(Gospel)

The custom of scapegoats
has
perdured, Jesus,
how
can I live with this

I want to blame
others
for what I do

I cannot carry
this burden­—

“leave all” said Jesus

“then come, follow me”

but Jesus,
they
will think I’m
crazy

“I know” said he
