The Passion of the Lord according to Mark
Today we celebrate Palm Sunday. The entry of Jesus into the Jerusalem. It was a moment of great joy as the people acknowledged who Jesus was and welcomed him. But how quickly things changed for Jesus. How quickly the people turned on him. We know after this moment Jesus’ life took a dramatic turn; he would ultimately give his life for our salvation.
I invite you today to read the Passion the Lord slowly and in dialogue with Jesus. You might like to ask him questions. Perhaps shared with him how you also identify with experiences of betrayal, denial and false accusation. Let Jesus reply to you.
Let us take advantage of this time of Holy Week to become more prayerful and attentive to the voice of Jesus and the complete self-giving for us
