When we see the palms today, it commemorates the triumphal procession of Jesus into Jerusalem and is the beginning of Holy Week, the final week of Lent.
Mustard Seed Communities' apostolates including Jacob's Ladder are contained homes where social distancing is not required.
Our Lenten practices of prayer, fasting, and charity over the past five weeks have prepared us to follow Jesus on this journey. A journey where He does not allow the glory of Palm Sunday to distract Him, but instead, He humbles himself, thinks of us, and invites us to follow Him on His path to Calvary.
"If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me." (Matthew 16:24)
In this final week before Easter, let us reflect on the profound gift given to us by God—the sacrifice of His son. And let us pray for the grace to follow the path of Jesus. It is only through the cross of Jesus that we are redeemed from sin and can hope to be in God's presence for all eternity.
