Palm Sunday

We are tempted to consider Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem, but ignore His exit from the city.  It is easy to join in the joyful celebrations of our faith.  We go to Church on Christmas and Easter and leave full of warmth. Then we realize that the palms are followed by the passion. And the joy of experiencing the Presence of the Lord is followed by His demand to join Him in the journey of sacrificial love, in the journey up to Calvary.
