The tragedy of Jesus' death on the cross didn't have to happen. This weekend could have been an ordinary spring one full of joy. Not a sadsack one focusing on the inhumanity of men against what they didn't want to hear.
Had his mother Mary pushed Jesus more toward careerism he might not have made such powerful enemies. But, it sure looks like Mary allowed her son to embrace social activism versus establishing himself as a carpenter.
Whatever the time in history, social activism can get its front lines in big trouble. In the Garden of Paradise, Eve yearned to change the rules. Both she and her significant other got kicked out. One of their sons wound up being a murderer.
Mary should have known that. Mothers have unique influence on their children. She could have had a heart-to-heart with Jesus:
"As a family we can work together to make 'Jesus Christ' the most sought-after brandname in the building business. From those revenues, sure, you can help the poor. But, not so fast. First things first. That's the carpentry shop."
It's truly a wonder that the schools of psychotherapy prominent in the early and mid 20th century didn't classify Mary as a bad mother. Her son didn't have to wind up getting executed by the state, they could have argued in a case study.
