Quodlibet

Go Figure

The Gospel according to Mark records two things Jesus did on Monday of the last week of his earthly life: He cursed and dried up the fig tree, and he purged the Temple.

He got in a lot of trouble for what he did in the Temple.

He would be in trouble, nowadays, for what he did to the fig tree.

—Patrick Henry Reardon
