No one had ever imagined that life would be born from death and that the Meessiah would have regard from the gallows. This required something more than logic, even that of all the theologians put together.
It was revelation!!
Believing that from now on we should win by losing defied all sense. Believing that God intended to inaugurate the kingdom of love freely given, the kingdom in which the poor were to be first and the rich overthrown in their uselessness and stupidity; believing in such an inversion of values would have been beyond our wildest imagination.
