Palm Sunday (Cycle C)
Holy Week begins. The Lord enters Jerusalem amid shouts of Hosanna. And yet, in a few days these same people will turn against him and cry: “Crucify him!” As the liturgy tells us, our King goes to his crucifixion like a gentle lamb.
Two thousand years later, our Lord is still mocked and crucified in his little ones: the poor, the persecuted, the imprisoned, the sick. Even we, his followers, sometimes forget and offend him.
This Holy Week let us sacrifice and make reparation for our sins and for all the offenses Jesus receives, uniting our sufferings to his for the salvation of the world.
May our observance of Holy Week bring us closer to Christ. Have a blessed Holy Week. God bless you!
