Be silent and come out of him
Reflections on Mark 1:21-28.
How is it possible
that the religious saw Jesus teach with authority
but failed to see his holiness?
When the unclean spirit
and obeyed the Holy One of God?
Why did Jesus become famous
in the countryside
when the miracle happened in the synagogue?
Was he not as much of a threat
to the religious
as he was to the unclean spirit?
And if the Holy One of God is present today,
why do I not see him
and keep silent in my obedience?
