Friends of the Rosary:

Today, March 24th, is Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion and the beginning of Holy Week. It’s the completion of the Paschal Mystery of the Passion and Resurrection.

For five weeks of Lent, we have been preparing to celebrate our Lord’s paschal mystery by prayer, works of charity, and self-sacrifice.

Today we commemorate this solemn celebration in union with the whole Catholic Church. Christ entered in triumph into his own city of Jerusalem to complete his work as our Messiah: to suffer, to die, and to rise again.

As the faithful, we remember and dramatize Christ’s triumphal entrance into Jerusalem on a donkey. A huge crowd assembled, put their cloaks or branches on the ground, and waved palm branches, acclaiming Christ as the King of Israel, the Son of David.

We now joyfully acclaim by holding branches of palm trees Jesus our Messiah and King and sing as the priest enters the church. We cry, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord.”

Jesus the Messiah was, and is, the sign of contradiction, acclaimed by some and reviled by others. He was sent by the Father into this world to wrest us from sin and the power of darkness.

By the reading today in mass of the Passion at the Gospel, we remain united with him in his suffering on the cross, may we share his resurrection and new life.

May we reach the happiness of the new and everlasting Jerusalem one day.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!

To Jesus through Mary!
Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will!
