St. Cecilia –
Jesus had become quite suspect in the eyes of the political and religious leaders of his day. They saw him as a threat to both the political and the religious order. Therefore, they conspired to find a way to destroy him. But the Bible says their hands were tied because he was too popular with the people. The citizens of our land have enormous power over their elected officials. We can tie our leaders’ hands when the majority of us raise our voices on any matter.
