On Easter Sunday, will we be ready to proclaim the words of this Psalm? Will we understand its radical implications for our everyday lives and for the way we organize our society?
This Psalm holds the key in understanding the life, death and Resurrection of Jesus. Jesus made all those who had been rejected, excluded or ignored – sinners, widows, lepers, children, those who were hungry, thirsty or imprisoned – into the cornerstone of a new world.
They, the last of the earth, had the eyes to see and ears to hear His message of salvation in a way that others could not. They had the potential to transform themselves and transform the world around them. “The last shall be first.”
