Palm Sunday Begins Holy Week! MARK 14:1-15

Palm Sunday Begins Holy Week! MARK 14:1-15

Dear friends,

Today is Palm Sunday, a unique Sunday in lent. It marks the beginning of  HOLY WEEK. 

Palm Sunday is the triumphant, joyful, and powerful commemoration of Christ's entry into the royal city of Jerusalem.  Christ is hailed by the crowds holding their palms as they blessed God and shouted Hosanna!!!

The same crowd on good Friday turned around and shouted;  Crucify Him!!!

As we join this crowd to show our solidarity to Christ today, it is important that we remain steadfast and faithful to him at all moments of our lives.

We must also extend this solidarity to others.

This is because, in others, we encounter both Christ the suffering servant of God as well as, Christ the King of the world.

We come together on Palm Sunday in joy and celebration. But we know that in coming together, it's to journey on the path of Christ to the Cross!!

We should not take this responsibility lightly.

We must support each other. We must love each other. We must lift each other up with Caritas(God's love). 

It is in his deepest suffering that Jesus reveals the fullness of his identity as the son of the father. Jesus shows us the fullness of what it is to be human as well as the fullness of what it is to be God.

In life, we too often face various kinds of challenging situations and oftentimes, we are heartbroken over what is prevailing in our lives, and we fail to look beyond the present to see what lies ahead of us. The situations we face in our lives should not define us. Passion and death could not define our Lord Jesus Christ because there would be arising from the dead. 
The door of the Holy week is Opened to us on this Palm Sunday.

The holy week story is not a story to be explained or understood. It a story to be embodied and live. 
Let us March on with the  Lord to his suffering and death as we look forward to the resurrection, so as to renew our lives with Jesus and leave sin behind to rise with new life at Easter.
