Palm Sunday

Hosanna!

Blessed is the one who comes in the name of our God!

I dig Palm Sunday. Why? Maybe because it's a slight reprieve from the sobriety of Lent (and in anticipation of the seriously somber triduum) where we get to shout in celebration about the coming of our Lord! Or maybe it's because palm trees are part of my cultural context and so I identify with them much better than the evergreens of Advent. Either way, Palm Sunday is a good day.

Be sure to celebrate a little, today. It's the Sunday of the passion, yes, but don't get ahead of yourself. Shout HOSANNA for a little while. He saves, you know. That's what that means. Remember that he saves.

Holy Monday
