Palm Sunday

I began today at the Mountain and it was a lovely day for Palm Sunday indeed. Though we were surrounded by yesterday’s snow it was approaching the mid 40’s in the sun at 11 am as Fr. Dan Riley, OFM pictured in the stoll here invited us to sing “Hosanna.” I thought of the passage from Luke 19:39-40, “Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, tell your disciples to be quiet.” He replied, “I tell you, if they were quiet, the stones would cry out!”

Today as we processed toward Holy Peace Chapel and walked over the gravel ground I thought of those words again and how even the stones were crying out. Today begins Holy Week and for me it is my favorite time of the church year. Hosanna in the highest, blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, Hosanna in the highest!
