♦Meditations and Reflections on:

Lent

"Lent is a time for greater Love. "

St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta

HOLY WEEK:

♦Palm Sunday

 

Palm Sunday: click here>>>

Palm Sunday ...if we want to encounter Jesus and then to walk with him on his

path, we must ask: on what path does he want to lead us? What do we expect of

him? What does he expect of us? To understand what happens on Palm Sunday

and to know what this means, not only for that hour but for all time, one detail has

proved to be important; it also became the key to understanding the event for his

disciples too, when they looked back after Easter with new eyes at those

tumultuous days. Jesus entered the Holy City riding on a donkey, that is, the

animal of the simple, common country people, and moreover, it was an ass that

did not belong to him but one he had asked to borrow for the occasion. He did not

arrive in an ostentatious royal carriage or on horseback like the great figures of

the world, but on a borrowed donkey. John tells us that at first the disciples did

not understand his action. Only after Easter did they realize that Jesus, by so

acting, was fulfilling what the prophets had foretold: that his action derived from

God's Word and was bringing it to fulfilment. … P. Benedict VXI

♦ Readings for Lent

The study of the sacred Scriptures must be a door opened to every believer.[136]  It is essential that the revealed

word radically enrich our catechesis and all our efforts to pass on the faith.[137]

Evangelization demands familiarity with God’s word, which calls for dioceses,

parishes and Catholic associations to provide for a serious, ongoing study of the Bible,

while encouraging its prayerful individual and communal reading.[138]  We do not blindly seek God,

or wait for him to speak to us first, for “God has already spoken, and there is nothing further that we need to know,

which has not been revealed to us”.[139]

Let us receive the sublime treasure of the revealed word.

- P. Francis Evangelii-Gaudium #175
