Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion – Humble Heart

Compassion might be called the fullness of divine and human perfection. Whatever God does, God does with compassion founded upon humility. That’s the way God works.  How do we know? We see compassion in Jesus. As you read the Passion Narrative of Mark on Palm Sunday or that of John on Good Friday, pay attention to God’s compassion. Jesus doesn’t embarrass Judas who exits the Last Supper. Jesus lets the sleeping apostles in Gethsemane rest. Jesus forgives the denial of Peter, the treachery of Judas, the abandonment of his apostles. He replaces the severed ear of the soldier. Jesus takes care of his mother from the cross. And always with humility, accepting the persons, accepting the situations, accepting the cross.

Be humble enough to clear your calendar to make room for the Holy Week services. If you cannot attend, read the Passion Narratives. Take time to learn by heart the sentences that make your heart skip a beat.
