Today, as I and the retreatants with whom I have spend these last few days prepare to bring our retreat experience to a close, we celebrate Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. The crowds praise him and lay palms at his feet, still thinking he has come to establish a kingdom here on earth. These same crowds will soon be crying, “Crucify Him!”
Today, however (with apologies to those of you who are not fans of Jesus Christ Superstar), they sing out their Hosannas:
Blessings on this Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion!
