Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord
March 24, 2013
During Holy Week each year, we enter most deeply into the foundation of our Christian
faith—the mystery of the death and resurrection of Jesus.
The Easter Triduum begins on Holy Thursday with the evening Mass of the Lord's Supper, is
continued through Good Friday with the celebration of the passion of the Lord and on Holy
Saturday, reaches its high point in the Easter vigil, and concludes with evening prayer on Easter
Sunday. The Season of Lent ends on Thursday of Holy Week. Then the Church remembers the
death and resurrection of Jesus during the Easter Triduum. These three days
are the most important time of the Church year.
Holy Thursday: Mass of the Lord's Supper
On Holy Thursday we remember the Last Supper and that Jesus gave himself
in the Eucharist. We recall that Jesus chose his apostles to serve and lead the
Church. Remembering that Jesus washed their feet at the Last Supper, the
priest washes the feet of members of the congregation. The evening Mass of the Lord's Supper on
Holy Thursday is a beautiful and joyful celebration. Because Holy Thursday is a feast day of the
Blessed Sacrament, there is a procession of the Eucharist after the Mass to an altar of repose set
up in the Parish Hall. Please note that there is no morning Mass this day.
Thursday, March 28th — 7:00pm Mass of the Lord’s Supper
Eucharistic Adoration 8:00pm-9:00pm in the Parish Hall
Good Friday of the Passion of the Lord
On Good Friday we remember the death of Jesus. According to an ancient
custom, Mass is not celebrated on this day or before the Easter Vigil on
Holy Saturday. The celebration of the Lord's passion and death takes place
in the afternoon. There are three parts to the liturgy of the day: the Liturgy of
the Word; the Veneration of the Cross; and Holy Communion with Hosts consecrated on Holy
Thursday. Please note that there is no morning Mass this day.

Make holy this week…
A New Kind of King
You are invited to make holy this week. Travel
with Jesus on the road to Calvary. It will take
you to a feast, where broken bits of bread, and
a simple cup of wine, proclaim the ancient
truth, God with us.
This Sunday Jesus enters
Jerusalem in a proud and
kingly manner. He receives
the pomp and glory of power.
The custom in Jesus’ day was
for royalty to ride a colt, or as
it is often translated, donkey.
This was not supposed to be a
sign of humility but of royal
status. To honor the kingly
person, people lined up on the
sides of the roadway, strewing
the tall palm fronds they had
picked, and also their own
cloaks, onto the roadway, to shield the King from the dirty road.
Then visit a quiet garden where you will hear
the invitation: “Keep watch with me and pray.”
Keep watch, heed His plea.
Then walk with Him, who took upon His
shoulders the weight of sin itself. See the wilting of his body, and the falter of his step, the
crushing load of wood, made heavier by our
wrongdoing. Walk slowly, breathe deeply, pray
gratefully. This path was trod for you.
Then pause and listen, not for the cry of pain,
or the words “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachtani?” or
even the sting of death—for they will come.
They will come.
But wait instead
for a light to
appear, not like
a dawn over
some distant
horizon, but
more like a
streaming forth through the crack in a rock. A
stone rolled away revealing…
NOTHING but a blood stained cloth, and the
promise kept—Love is stronger than death.
Make holy this week, make holy.
—Living with Christ
Kid’s Corner
The Church calls the last week of
Lent “Holy Week.” This is the week
with Holy Thursday, Good Friday,
Holy Saturday and the Easter
Vigil. It begins with Palm Sunday
and ends with the greatest holy
day, Easter. It is indeed a holy
week. Bring your family to Church
this week for all these holy days!
Jesus did not shy away from these mighty honors; in fact he
caused them to happen. He sent disciples to get the colt. He
chose to ride it. He entered Jerusalem as a Savior King. The
Palm branches distributed to us on Palm/Passion Sunday are a
reminder of this.
Jesus had always been very wary of this kind of treatment. He
had warned the disciples not to tell anyone about the miracles he
was doing, so that he would not become a celebrity. So, why the
exception in this case? Look at the liturgy. We have a special
opening procession in Sunday’s Mass to act out the above story.
But very soon we hear, not homage, but horrors, in Christ’s
Passion from the Gospel of Luke. Suddenly this honored, great
king is betrayed. Peter the Rock, who promised never to deny
him, does exactly that, three times. Jesus says out loud that he,
Jesus, must be “counted among the wicked” (Luke 22:37, quoting
Isaiah 53:12).
He sweats blood in the garden and then gives himself over into
the devil’s hands, saying, in effect, “This is your hour, time for
your darkness.” A mock trial follows, and the alleged king joins
simple thieves in a bloody death. Those strewn palms had been a
mistake. There was no king here after all. Or was there? All
leadership has service at its root. The reason for kingship is not
dominance, riches, honor or power. These are siren calls to entice
the leader into betrayal. Kingship and all leadership exist in order
to secure the welfare of the kingdom and especially the welfare of
those who are in it.
Jesus came to bring this kind of kingdom, one of service and
humility, not of pride and competition. The way of the cross was
the greatest fulfillment of his kingship, as opposed to cheering
and accolades.
A new kind of king.

Pasión de luz y oscuridad
Como en un paisaje, luz y sombra caen sobre el evangelio de hoy. Comenzamos con la brillante alegría de Jesús, quien tanto ha “deseado comer esta Pascua” con sus amigos.
Cuando da su cuerpo y su sangre, su brillo no mengua a pesar de la sombra del traidor,
cuya mano está en la misma mesa de la celebración.
Con frecuencia, los artistas pintan aquella Cena como luminosa, con aureolas sobre todos
los discípulos. Sin embargo, ellos se trenzan en un mezquino altercado sobre quién es el
mayor, inconscientes de la comida tan importante que comparten. La lealtad de Pedro es una llamarada de petate, sofocada por el anuncio de su traición, hecho por el propio Jesús. Jesús mismo se adentra en la oscuridad
del monte de los Olivos, una oscuridad ennegrecida con el beso de Judas. Incluso junto al fuego brillante, la
cobardía de Pedro es oscura, y la sirvienta reluce honestidad. Los complejos procedimientos judiciales son
sombríos, como probablemente lo son en las cortes injustas del mundo actual. La oscuridad se cuaja alrededor
de la cruz, pero Jesús es centro brillante de luz: perdonando, prometiendo el paraíso al buen ladrón, y entregando su espíritu a Dios.
Enseguida lo luminoso pasa a sus seguidores: el centurión, la gente arrepentida, José, las mujeres que preparan las especies. También sobre nuestros días caen luz y oscuridad; estaremos atentos a ambos esta Semana Santa, llevando luz a donde podamos, y sufriendo las sombras donde debamos. Seguimos a un Redentor
que conoció ambas y que está a nuestro lado en la luz y en la oscuridad.
