Blessed Is Anyone Who Takes no Offense at Me

Oh, Jesus, Jesus!
We embrace your vision
of restoring sight to the blind;
we delight in every discarded wheelchair, and cast-off crutch.
Let the deaf hear? We’ll shout “glory!” in their ears.
Raise the dead?  We’ll raise the roof.

But, Jesus, Jesus!

When you start bringing good news to the poor
you’re bound to cause offense.
Leave that to the socialists.

(Matthew 11: 2 – 6)
