This November, a movie will be released about the “Justice League”. The Justice League is composed of the superheros: Spiderman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, and Cyborg. Their mission is to see justice prevail. Jesus is the ultimate champion of justice. Jesus, the just, talked about the silliness of building bigger and bigger to house wealth, about the leper at the rich-man’s door, about a young ruler invited to follow and give it all away to the poor.
The Transfiguration that we celebrated on 6 August, is a prelude to the Easter Resurrection. Moses and Elijah fade in the dazzling glory of Jesus. He is the One. As we follow his lead, we, too, become people of justice for all. As we follow his lead, we, too, become members of his “League of Justice”.
