Many people, including me, are asking frequently this year how our electoral choices came to be so ridiculously horrid. Where is the honorable candidate? The one who has been consistently honest and not self-serving? Why are there no leaders we can trust?
We have to admit we ourselves are at least partially to blame. Humanity is a lousy judge of character, because the “the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately sick. Who can understand it?”
Let’s face it, at least today of all days: when the Perfect Leader showed up, many centuries ago, this is what we did to Him:
We were offered the Bread of Life, and the crowd called for Barabbas instead. It shouldn’t be a surprise to realize our choices have been ever-more problematic since then. Just remember that Christ still wears the crown He won that day, and no matter who wins the Presidency, they will one day bow the knee to the One who is Faithful and True.
