THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

We know where Jesus is going to end up, and Jesus knows it too. At the beginning of today’s Mass, we hear of Jesus’ spectacular entry into Jerusalem. The crowds who greet him cry out and praise God—the king has come! It is similar to how victorious army generals were welcomes home. These people have set their hopes on Jesus. They are waiting for a Messiah and King, and have heard so much about this preacher—is he the one they’ve been waiting for?

But Jesus is not the hero they’ve been expecting. He has not comes to raise up an army or become a great political leader. Quite the opposite: Jesus has come to Jerusalem to die. The story takes a dark and dramatic turn, and we are plunged in to a tale of arrest, trial, torture, and death. Before long, the crowds are shouting "Crucify him! Crucify him" and taunting him on the cross to "save himself if he is the Christ of God." Jesus’ triumphant entrance into the city is also his entry into his betrayal, suffering, and death.

We play our part in the unfolding drama today, as we first hold up our palm branches and later join the crowds condemning Jesus. In his Palm Sunday homily to young people last year, Pope Francis said the changing reactions of the crowds "expressed the contradictory feelings that we too, the men and women of today, ex-perience: the capacity for great love, but also for great hatred; the capacity for courageous self-sacrifice, but also the ability to ‘wash our hands’."

Today we place ourselves in the Passion of Jesus, and we look to the Cross as our consolation and our challenge.

-Tríona Doherty
