“Like the donkey that carried Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, how many people enjoy advantages at the back of their powerful relatives and powerful friends. When these relatives die or lose power, the ‘arrogant’ lose the importance they thought they had. Jesus is the only one whose power is eternal”, writes P. James.
