On Palm Sunday we begin the commemoration of the high points in the history of our salvation: the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus in the Paschal Mystery. We hear about the triumph of Jesus in Jerusalem in the Gospel read before the Mass; but this triumph is short-lived, because it is followed by his Passion.
Every day is another day to discern and fulfill our own mission or calling. No matter what challenges need to be faced, stay focused on your purpose. As we journey through this Holy Week, let us keep our eyes firmly fixed on Jesus, who is focused, patient, consistent and faithful in doing the will of God. Jesus in his passion, death and resurrection gives us hope, and he is always present to journey with us.
Spend some time with the offerings from staff to prepare for Sunday Mass.
