Today we celebrate the Palm Sunday of the Passion of Our Lord, the beginning of Holy Week. Through our participation in the liturgical celebrations of this week, we enter more deeply into the life-saving death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. The paschal mystery into which we were baptized and in which we are called to live out each day of our lives, is intensified during this Holy Week as we walk with Jesus from his triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday to the events of Holy Thursday and Good Friday to the Resurrection of the Lord on Easter Sunday. Of course, the reality of what God did for us in Jesus Christ becomes more meaningful to us if we actually celebrate it liturgically throughout Holy Week. I encourage you to make a sacrifice of your time this week and come to as many of the liturgies as possible - especially the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday, Good Friday of the Lord’s Passion, and Easter Vigil/Easter Sunday. It is a sacrifice but one that is most definitely worth making!
