This picture of Christ is compelling: in His Holy Face we see Him contemplating the end of the week ahead as He knows how it will all end. Yet the faces around Him are laughing, joyous, oblivious to the coming pain and passion.
We gather together with blessed palms in hand to once again rejoice in our Savior. But that rejoicing also includes pain and sacrifice. Ours is not a health and wealth Faith: ours is a Faith based on prayer, work, sacrifice and discipleship that leads us into the same Passion as our Lord. Thursday begins the Holy Triduum, the 3 Days of Darkness and Light. The darkness of crucifixion, the Light of the Resurrection.
May God bless us all with renewed faith, and desire to do His Holy Will.
That's me away.
