Palm (Passion) Sunday (Year A)

The Passion narratives paint a detailed picture of the suffering which Christ endured. The abandonment of his disciples, the rejection of his own people, the injustice of the trial and the barbaric cruelty of Roman punishment, were added to by the isolation he must have felt during his ordeal, yet not once did he display anything but love and forgiveness.

The passivity of Christ as he bowed to his Father’s plan of redemption indicates just how much the will of God is focused on saving his beloved creatures. He is ready to offer whatever it takes to restore relations between God and man, to open a way back home to himself. This is the victory reflected in Christ’s words ‘It is accomplished!’ This is Love.
