'Here in this place, with these people, we begin that week we call Holy.
We crane our necks to see the parade,
we will bow our heads as the funeral procession winds through the streets.
We have been with Jesus on this journey; we long for courage to go to the end....
This week during Aftertalk we will take stock of this year's Lenten journey and look forward to the three days that will take us to Easter morning. What meaning can we draw for the last days of Jesus' life and what is it saying to us this year about our own lives.
Matt 21:1 - 11 † Isaiah 50:4 - 9a † Psalm 31:9 - 16 † Philippians 2:5 - 11 † Matt 27:11 - 54
"Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world's grief. Act justly now. Love mercy now. Walk humbly now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.""
