Palm Sunday ~ April 14, 2019

Apr 16, 2019

My Dear Parish Family,

For most of us Holy Week unfolds like many other weeks; we still contend with work, school, preparing meals, doing laundry, cranky folks, the usual triumphs and setbacks. Palm Sunday begins an extraordinary week – a week that concentrates in a few days the ultimate meaning of our whole Christian life. We must slow ourselves down and make choices so that this week doesn’t go by without our taking the time to enter into its meaning. We celebrate in the liturgies what we live every day – all the dying to self that characterized truly faithful disciples of Jesus, all the dying to self that proclaims our making visible our ultimate desire to live forever with God, united with this Jesus who suffered, died, and was buried. This Jesus who was raised. Living in this kingdom  is possible when we, too, commend ourselves into God’s hands.

In Christ’s Peace,

Fr. Walter
