Author : François ODINET
When very poor people meditate on the Gospel, they take God at his word, reading Scripture as a promise which resonates with the promise qualifying every human life. The encounter of Gospel promise with their everyday experience is an Easter encounter: it can provoke a shout revealing the power of their prayer or giving an account of the resurrection. It can again give witness to the presence of God in the very place where his promise appeared to be discounted. The reaction which very poor people bring to the Gospel is thus shown to be one of singular authority.
