Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion

April 17, 2011



TODAY (Red)                      NEXT WEEK (White)            Is 50:4-7                                                  Acts 10:34a-37-43

 Phil 2:6-11                                                            Col 3:1-4

Mt 26:14—27:66                                                   Jn 20 1-9


 Abandonment has two faces. On the one hand, Jesus suffers abandonment not only by his followers but even seemly by God. On the other hand, Jesus freely chooses an abandonment of his own: letting go of his rightful claim to “equality with God,” to his human dignity, and to life itself. For his choice to abandon all, God lifts Jesus in exaltation. This is more than the “plot” of Holy Week; it is the core of Christian life.
