Palm Sunday

“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice…The Lord is at hand. Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything, by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Jesus Christ” Phil. 4:4-7 All of us look to the time of Passion Week a certain amount of anticipation. The final scenes of the drama of salvation and of the life of Jesus are about to be reenacted before us again. We are blessed with the opportunity of participating in the whole cycle of the liturgical services of Passion Week, so richly satisfying and profoundly moving. We know, too, that the long-awaited Feast of feasts, and that solemn day, the Resurrection of our Lord, is at hand. That is the spirit and mood of Palm Sunday, the Feast of Royal Entry of our Lord into Jerusalem. It carries the air of festivity, for it is truly a great feast of the Church. It is clear that Jesus is entering Jerusalem as King, acclaimed by joyful shouts of praise. At the same time, it is also clear that this public acknowledgement of Jesus is ushering in the dramatic sequence of agony, trial, and abandonment to the Father’s will. Jesus’ reign is established, and our redemption is assured. We begin Passion Week with the perspective of faith: Jesus’ power and reign are already in effect even in the darkest moments of all that we commemorate this week. It is an insight that we can then carry with us. The victory and lordship of Christ are ever present and manifest as we face the life’s darkest aspects and moments. Encouraged by this faith, the above words from the Apostle Paul’s epistle might carry us through Holy Week and our own hours of darkness, toward the dawning radiance of the Holy Resurrection.
