PALM SUNDAY OF THE PASSION OF THE LORD

PALM SUNDAY OF THE PASSION OF THE LORD
Hats off to Jesus’ message

Imagine a baseball-cap seller in the first century. Further, imagine the catchy phrases on the brim of his wares: “The last will be first.” “Let me wash your feet.” “Love your enemies.” “Bless those who hurt you.” “Be like the children.” “Feed my sheep.” “Take up your cross.” “The humble will be exalted.” “Blessed are the meek.” Who’s going to buy this misguided fellow’s hats? The rest of us want to boast, not bow. This guy doesn’t get it. He needs to get into another line of work. Would you wear a hat that says: “I come to serve”?

Today’s readings:Procession: Luke 19:28-40 (37); Mass: Isaiah 50:4-7; Philippians 2:6-11; Luke 22:14—23:56 (38).

“I am among you as the one who serves.”
