Palm Sunday of the Passion of Our lord

 

From the Gospel:
"While they were eating, He took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "Take and eat; this is My Body." Then He took the cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, "This is My Blood of the Covenant, which will be shed for many." (Mark 14:22-24)

Today we read the entire account of Jesus' Passion from the Gospel of Mark. This narrative will be with us the entire coming week. We need to ponder this mystery with Mary during the coming days.


Today we recount and relive the triumphant entry of Christ into Jerusalem. But the joy does not last for long. He is soon attacked, conspired against, arrested, beaten and crucified for each of us. He does this in total selfless love.

Make an act of Spiritual Communion asking for an increase in faith, and reflect on the Mystery of the Eucharist
