Palm Sunday – 2018

 

“Hosanna (…) blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, Hosanna in the highest”

 

Jesus enters Jerusalem in exaltation. People gathered around Him with “leafy branches”, they spread their cloaks on the road and all kept crying out: “Hosanna”. It is a triumphant entry. They acclaimed Him to be the king. A week later, they cry out: “Crucify him”. The moods of the people are quickly changing. Ours as well. There must be some reasons for that. Are we the same as those people of Jerusalem? So moody? So changeable? Why? 

 

Are ready to acclaim Jesus as our king? Why? Is there any solid reason to do so?

 

Here are my reasons:

 

-      He is the true teacher who teaches the truth, because He is the TRUTH;

 

-      He shows me the true way to the heavenly kingdom of God because He is the WAY;

 

-      He, through the example of his life, empowers me to lead a good life because He is the LIFE;

 

-      He strengthens me with His Body and Blood so that I may imitate Him and become a true image of God on this earth;

 

I do acclaim Him – Jesus Christ – to be my King. “Hosanna in the highest
