Sunday, April 5, 2009 ~ Palm Sunday of the Lord's Passion

Note: These Sunday & Holy Day Gospel Reflections are written so that mothers may prepare for Holy Mass in advance either as a small group or individually (especially since we are so often necessarily distracted during Mass itself).

Mark 14:1—15:47

This week, I invite you to pick up your own Bible and in silent meditation read this Gospel passage, the Lord's Passion. Not only is it too long to reprint here, I want you to have the opportunity to read it slowly and deliberately, pausing as necessary to truly reflect on what is happening.


My friends, there is no reflection I can give to this Gospel at this time. I have been pondering it for days, but each time I read my Lord's Passion, I am overcome. I urge you to find some silence to read and ponder this Gospel sometime during this Holiest Week. May it ignite your love for Jesus Crucified anew.
