THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK FROM ST. AUGUSTINE SPIRITUALITY CENTER

April 13-19, 2014

 

Palm Sundayis the first day of Holy Week and is one of only two days on the church calendar when we proclaim and hear the complete story of the passion and death of Jesus. 
The entrance rite for Palm Sunday offers several options and so it's possible that the Mass you attend may begin with a proclamation of the gospel of Christ's entry into Jerusalem. This will take place at Masses including a special Palm Sunday procession. 
Yes, the proclamation of the gospel this weekend is much longer than usual and you might hear some grumbling about that. But this is a story Christians need to hear: it tells the depths of Jesus' love for each of us and for all of us...
Without the story of Christ's suffering and death there is no story of Easter joy and peace... 

Spend some time with all of the readings, especially the gospel. You might find it helpful as your read it to imagine yourself as one or several of the characters and ponder: 
     what if I had been one of the apostles? 
     what if I had been one of the priests or scribes? 
     what if I had been Pilate? or Judas? or Peter? 
          or one of the bystanders in the courtyard with Peter?
     what if I had been the centurion at the foot of the Cross? 

     what if I had been one of the women at the foot of the Cross?
     what if I had been Jesus? 
At one time or another in our lives, we are all of these... 
     who am I, who are you in this Week we call Holy?
