Palm Sunday Reflection 3-24-2024

Tuesday, March 5th, 2024

What does it mean, this good, kind loving young man, barely in his
thirties, dying for no crime at all. What does it mean and what is it for?
What it means is that God loves us so much that God will withhold
from us absolutely nothing – not even God’s own dear Son. What it
means is that no matter what, God will always be there for us, with All
God’s love and power, comfort and grace.
There are no limits to God’s commitment to us, none at all.
Through this terrible moment in Jesus’ life. God’s saying, “You can
count on me. I’ll never desert you, and there’s nothing I won’t give you,
not even my Son.”
This Passion Sunday is, in one way, a very sad day. Walking with
Jesus on this day can break your heart. But it’s also the brightest of days,
because it tells how very much, we are loved, and because it reminds us
who view it from the vantage point of the resurrection that, despite all
appearances, failure, death, rejection, ALL WILL BE WELL!
