Gospel Reflection for April 1st, Palm/Passion Sunday

27 Mar

Hosanna!  Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!

Mark 11.9

Holy Week begins by celebrating Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem with palms and songs that express honor and praise.  In the Palm Sunday gospel and in the “Holy, Holy, Holy” at every Eucharist, Christians identify Jesus as the one who comes in the name of God and inherits God’s promises to David.  Mark’s gospel fills the narrative with clues that Jesus is the messiah.

What in the Holy Week liturgies expresses who Jesus is for you?
