The Sunday Word

Our Gospel today has Jesus reprimanding and rebuking the demon, saying, "Be silent, and come out of him!" And the unclean spirit, convulsing the man and crying with a loud voice, comes popping out like a fumbled football.    

Jesus exudes such authority that even demons obey instantly.  

Jesus possesses such poise that even evil forces know that he is the Holy One of God. 

Jesus is pumped up with such power that even unclean spirits know his arrival.   

Jesus, in another words, takes control of the chaos.
