Palm Sunday
The palm branch represents goodness and victory and was symbolic of
the final victory Jesus would soon fulfill over death (1 Cor. 15:55). In
Biblical times, it was common for kings or important people to arrive by a
procession riding on a donkey. The donkey symbolized peace, so those
who chose to ride them showed that they came with peaceful intentions.
When the people shouted "Hosanna!" they were hailing Christ as King.
That word actually means "save us now!"

Purpose of the Lamb
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a
witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him.
He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light. The true
light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. He was in
the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not
know him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him.
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right
to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of
the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. John 1:6-13
In the week ahead may we prepare our hearts for the agony of Christs
Passion and the Joy of His resurrection

The Word Became Flesh

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

John 1:1-5


The Gospel of John begins with a magnificent prologue, which states many of the major themes and motifs of the gospel, much as an overture does for a musical work. The prologue proclaims Jesus as the reexistent and incarnate Word of God who has revealed the Father to us (BibleGateway).

Over the last few weeks and months we have been exploring what it means to be the light to the world and merely a moment in history later one little plague has shut down schools, offices, the Vatican, Jerusalem, Mecca, the Olympic games, airlines as the world lies stranded and hiding in their homes. When the trumpet sounds and Jesus returns for His own blood washed Saints, while many in the world scoff and say this was merely the stuff of fairy tales.
