Palm Sunday - 29 Mar 15
Fr Jude Shayo
As we hear the long accounts of His passion, at every turn we must remind ourselves - He suffered this cruel and unusual violence, for us.
He is the Suffering Servant foretold by Isaiah in today’s First Reading. He reenacts the agony described in today’s Psalm, and even dies with the first words of that Psalm on His lips (Psalm 22:1).
His enemies never understood: His kingship isn’t of this world (John 18:36). He wants to write His law, His rule of life on our hearts and minds.
As we enter Holy Week, let us once more resolve to give Him dominion in our lives. Let us take up the cross He gives to us - and confess with all our hearts, minds, and strength, that truly this is the Son of God.
