The dynamics of the salvation
As Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve (disciples) aside by themselves, and said to them on the way, “Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priests and the scribes, and they will condemn him to death, and hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and scourged and crucified, and he will be raised on the third day”. Mt 20,17-19
If a company goes bad the entrepreneur is uneasy with the employee, who returns back home and badly treats his wife who behaves by the same way with the son, who is angry with the cat, who, while being not at fault, pays for all. If, in a large building, the tenant of the top floor sweeps the balcony and throws the dirt on the balcony of the penultimate one and this throws his dirt down, in the end all the dirt reaches the garden of the tenant of the ground floor, which must collect the dirt generated by everyone, to allow that everyone could live in a clean environment. There is a rule in the life, which embodies the size of a mystery, for which there must always be a last one which pays for the sins of all, even if it is not his responsibility. This is the strategy chosen by God to free the world from the sin. He sent his Son, Jesus of Nazareth, the just, that, due to his love versus the humanity, has offered to go down to the last step of the social ladder and to die for the injustice of all, to allow that everyone can return back right or, as the gospel says, “justified”. The Father, however, resurrected him, because the love wins even the death and to avoid that we were crushed by the sensation of guilt for having removed from the land of the living people the only right person. This is the dynamics of the liberation and of the redemption, which, being started with Jesus Christ, continues in the history of salvation. Even today there are innocent people willy-nilly, who pay for the injustice and the sins of others, to the purpose that, in the end, everyone can be redeemed and liberated and he may even reach the understanding of the truth. This was the case of Eluana, who, in a coma, was denied food and made to die to permit to the all of us to detect again the sense of the sacredness of the life. But Eluana is certainly risen to a new life, because that of the history of the salvation is a good mystery in addition to be a right one.
