“Come Along!”  Palm Sunday – March 24

“Who is that guy riding on a donkey?” The town gossips said they knew: he was the fanatical preacher who talked about eating his body and drinking his blood. “Come on. Let’s join the crowd. Just yell ‘Hosanna!’”

And so, they walked the streets behind a donkey. They heard shouts of “God save the Son of David!” Narrow streets carried the echoes: “Hosanna!” “Blessed!” Looking for distraction, people called to by-standers, “Come along. Join the crowd. Shout ‘God save him!’”

“Yes,” the man on the colt thought, “God save him.”

    Yes, a triumphal entry that is so sad.
