The Tale of Two Rebellions

by Father Brian J. Soliven on Sunday July 4, 2021

I want to tell you the tale of two rebellions. The first one happened 245 years ago; the second happened 2600 years ago. One was right and just; the other was wrong and unjust. Each occurred against an authority figure, as all rebellions do. The question we must ask ourselves is why the former was correct and the latter gravely wrong. It all has do with whom we are fighting against.
