The Summary of Holy Week

Sermon From
Palm Sunday 2014

In the liturgy of Palm Sunday we are shown by Holy Mother Church the summary of the entire Holy Week.  Christ allowed Himself to be given regal praise this day, and we continue that celebration in the blessing and distribution of palms, which are a sign of victory.  The ancient practice of the Church in Jerusalem is repeated now in the triumphant procession.  Heaven is our goal, and we are called to follow Our Lord in all humility, so that we may have a part in that final procession when the souls of the just join their heavenly King.
