GOOD NEWS zt:e-u / lsaiah So:4-7 / Philemon z:6-r.r / Matthew a6:t4-27:$6 or zTta-$b From the joyful procession into Jerusalem, through the passion and death of Jesus, to the sealing of the tomb by the guards, Passion Sunday (as it is sometimes called) prepares us for the coming Holy Week. Matthew

The story draws us in, We are the ones who hail Jesus as the one who is to come. We pray the familiar words in Psalm u8 that call on God to save us' (The familiar word Hosanna is actually a plea for salvation from God.)

When we hear the Passion narrative, we become the disciples at the Last Supper and unable to stay awake in Gethsemane. We are the crowd who cries out for Barabbas (a play on words: the name means "Son of the Father") and calls for Jesus' crucifixion. This is the most important thing that has ever happened to us' This is the story of the fulfillment of God's promise to save us. We will meditate and pray on this mystery all week: God so loved the world, he sent us his only Son'

OUOTE OF THE WEEK

though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God something to be grasped. Rather, he emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming Jesus,

in human likeness; and found human in appearance, he humbled himself, becoming Philippians z:6-8 obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. ..

Every year on Passion Sundry (Palm Sunday), palm branches are handed out and blessed as a powerful reminder ofJesus' entry into Jerusalem. We keep palm branches for two reasons. First, they symbolize our desire to accompany Christ through Holy Week Second, they symbolize Jesus' desire to enter our homes and accompany us on our journey as we face our own Good Fridays. Taking the palms home and placing them behind a crucifix or holy picture is a power l reminder ofthar Many parishes ask their members to bring the palm branches they received the previous year to church on the Sunday before Ash Wednesday. These branches are burned to make the ashes that are distributed on fuh Wednesday. After a time, palm branches get brittle and break easily, so if your church doesn't collect them it's OKto break the palms up and burn them yourself The number of palm branches we have in our homes isn't impoftant. Palms and other articles of devotion such as medals and scapulars don't bring good luck or wealth, and we shouldn't try to use them in that way. We should use them to remind us of the goodness of God and the salvationJesus brings us.
