PALM SUNDAY

 (Readings: Is 50:4-7// Psalm 22:2a// Phil 2:6-11// Mt 26:14-27:66).

Palm Sunday begins with the reading of the jubilant march into Jerusalem with palms held high and hosannas ringing out (Mt 21:1-11). but very quickly, the Gospel reminds us that this is more properly called Passion Sunday and begins Holy Week. The palms remind us our human fickleness: if we live our lives dependent on human acclaim, popular opinion, we are building on the wind. The palms place us within the Passion account identifying us with any character (Peter, Judas, Pilate, etc..). And the palms remind us of Christ love, despite our sins, in Him we can have a new and strong life. The King goes to be crowned: his crown is thorns, and his throne a cross. He comes to the world, to his Church, to my family, to my soul and says: here I am, I am for you; are you for me?... Have a happy Holy Week (Fr Gabriel).

 

 

DOMINGO DE RAMOS

 (Lecturas: Is 50,4-7// Sal 21 // Fil ,6-11// Mt 26,14-27.66.

La entrada triunfal de Jesús en Jerusalén (Mt 21,1-11), cumple las expectativas del Antiguo Testamento: Jesús es el Rey humilde y pacifico viene a visitar a su pueblo, y los de corazón sincero reciben su eficacia salvadora. La lectura de la Pasión nos introduce en el Misterio Pascual de Cristo, por la cual nos preguntamos: "¿Porque Jesús tenía que morir?" y nos vamos a dar cuenta que fue por el gran amor del Padre, la obediencia del Hijo y la maldad del pecado. En la pasión de Jesús vemos su amor extremo por la humanidad, y también vemos el lado oscuro de la naturaleza humana actuando en contra de Él tratando de destruirlo. En estos momentos de incertidumbre cantamos con profunda fe, “Dios mío, Dios mío, ¿Porque me has abandonado? (Sal 21), pero también encontramos allí palabras de consuelo: "Pero tú, Señor, no te quedes lejos; fuerza mía, ven corriendo a ayudarme". ¡Les deseo a todos una Feliz Semana Mayor!!

 (Padre Gabriel).
