Now to the gate of my Jerusalem, The seething holy city of my heart, The saviour comes. But will I welcome him? Oh crowds of east feelings make a start; They raise their hands, get caught up in the singing, And thing the battle won.

So begins Malcom Guite’s sonnet "Palm Sun-day" (Sounding the Seasons, Canterbury press, 2012), capturing the elation of the crowds that line the streets of Jerusalem to welcome Jesus. But their loyalty is short-lived, as we discover in our reading of the Passion. Jesus is soon deserted, betrayed, denied, and left to face humiliation and death alone.

Too soon they’ll find The challenge, the reversal he is bringing Changes their tune. We can all see ourselves in the Passion. There are times, when things are going smoothly when it is easy to praise God and should Hosanna. There are days when we struggle, when we are confused or upset and do not know what God expects of us. We can even turn out back on him when the going gets tough, or when we cannot find the courage to stand up for our beliefs. This week we are the disciples walking with Jesus, on a jour-ney that leads to the cross, and beyond.
