Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord

April 14, 2019

This week we celebrate Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord.  Jesus arrives in Jerusalem amid shouts of joy – a servant freely giving over his will to God - fully knowing that His Paschal Mystery was at hand.  As we experience Luke’s account of the Passover Meal that Jesus shared with his disciples through Jesus’ burial by Joseph of Arimathea we experience Jesus’ resolve to complete the mission that he was sent to live.  Let us rejoice today with many HOSANNAS – the week is yet to come…

Participation in the Triduum (Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Vigil, and Easter Sunday) opens our hearts –if we schedule the time to be part of the experience!  The JOY of the Easter Season is coming!

Please – bring your children & teens to share in the various celebrations – otherwise – how will they know the meanings and events of Holy Week if you do not share them and allow them to talk about them with you?  Do not accept – boring – as a reason that they do not want to attend – living ones’ faith can never be boring or dull if we know the meaning behind the events!  Take time to share Holy Week – it will enrich your family life and allow everyone to grow in their love of God and Church!       Take time to reflect …
