Mark 11: 1-10
Isaiah 50: 4-7 Philippians 2: 6-11 Mark 14:1- 15:47
Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for
persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted
in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.
From today’s Gospel reading:
Those preceding Jesus as well as those
following kept crying out,
"Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in
the name of the Lord."
Humans fight to gain power over
others. Disciples are not exempt from these ambitions; but Jesus
knew that God’s rule would come by his patient suffering and death.
How different is that! The crowd and we look for displays of power.
But Jesus offers us the cross.
So we ask ourselves:
- God’s power appears as weakness
to the world?
- What could that mean?
