Palm Sunday

Take a few minutes to gaze upon the image below. Hear the people call out "Hosanna!" as they lay down their cloaks and palms for Jesus as he enters Jerusalem.

Reflective questions:

  1. How have I prepared for Jesus this Easter and beyond?
  2. How have I shared His message of salvation with others?

How much time can you make forJesus this week?

"Could you not watch one hour with me?"

In today's reading of the Passion we hear Jesus ask this question of his friends. During this Holy Week, he asks us the same question.

Are we planning to take some time on Holy Thursday evening to commemorate and celebrate the day in which we received the great gift of Eucharist and the commandment to love and serve one another?

Will we set aside a little time on Good Friday afternoon to walk the Way of the Cross with Jesus and accompany him in the hour of his crucifixion and death?

Can we forego a little sleep on Saturday night to celebrate the vigil of Jesus' resurrection and recall the wonderful history of our salvation?

And on Easter Sunday will we bring our whole family to church to sing, "Alleluia, Jesus is risen"?
