Driven out and drowned

Somebody should make a You-Tube video of today’s Gospel, Matthew 8: 28-34. Beside the demoniacs, there’s the drama of a herd of pigs running off a cliff, like lemmings, and drowning. What a splash!

But what should really be happening in our lives is asking what needs to be driven out and drowned.

What aspects of my life prevent me from being truly human – that is truly a reflection of the image and likeness of God?

What needs to be driven out and drowned?

Some aspects of our lives really need to be drowned.

But then there are some aspects that just need to be transformed by the grace of our baptism, where we are drowned to death in order to live fully.

May I be open to the Lord driving out the demons and letting them be drowned. And may I also be open to those aspects of my life that need to be transformed by God’s grace.
