PALM SUNDAY (B) March 28, 2021

Processional Gospel:  Mark 11: 1-10 or John 12: 12-16   

Isaiah 50: 4-7; Philippians 2: 6-11; Mark 14:1- 15:47

Jude Siciliano, OP

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

Many people spread their cloaks on the road,

and others spread leafy branches.
Those preceding Jesus as well as those following kept crying out,
“Hosanna!  Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.”

Reflection:

Despite the fact that Jesus’ appearances were humble, this did not turn people off or drive them away from him.  We tend to be impressed by splash and displays of power that fill us with awe. Jesus doesn’t draw attention by such grandiose spectacles, but because his words and actions hold out hope to the weary and hopeless. Today we join the crowds who greet Jesus as he enters Jerusalem. and add our own “Hosannas” to theirs.

So, we ask ourselves: 

  • What is there about Jesus that draws me to him and keeps me as his follower?

  • What can I do to reflect his simplicity and humility in my daily actions?
