PALM SUNDAY OF THE PASSION OF THE LORD
God greatly exalted [Christ] and bestowed on him the name which is above every name.
— Philippians 2:9

THE ATTITUDE OF CHRIST JESUS
The Lenten cycle brings us to this “mixed” Sunday of palm branches and painful suffering. Our liturgy opens by recalling Jesus’ triumphant entry along the main road into Jerusalem, then moves quickly to the back streets of betrayal and humiliation, the courtyards of torture and abandonment, the hill of execution. Isaiah’s strange and gripping “Song of the Servant of God” was to become the song of Jesus. It is the song of one who strides forward consistently in the face of criticism, even scorn: “I have not rebelled, have not turned back.” It is to become our song, as faithful followers of Jesus Christ. How are we to react when we hear the account of the passion and death of the Lord? Paul tells us that our attitude must be Christ’s, who “emptied himself, taking the form of a slave.” We pray that we may absorb the attitude of Christ, and face life squarely in its triumph and its pain.

On Ash Wednesday we begin the season of Lent, a time of reflection and renewal of our spiritual life. We remind everyone that Ash Wednesday is a day of fast and abstinence.
