Palm Sunday

Published on Apr 13th, 2019 by Parish Office | 0

My Dear St. Bernadette Family,

Again we have two gospels today, but both are proper for this day called “Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion.” We have the gospel story of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem and we have Luke’s account of the “Passion.”

The first is a story of cheering, palm waving and shouts of joy. The second is a story of denying, scourging and shouts of “Crucify Him!” Both stories are our story. Can we see the duplicity in our sometime passionate avowal of Christ and our sometimes denial through life choices?

The bottom line, He gave His life for us! Can we do any less in response?

With love,

Fr. Tom
