Palm Sunday is an opportunity to reflect on the Passion of Christ and prepare ourselves for Holy Week. As Jesus entered the city of Jerusalem, He received the adoration and praise of a king, but presented Himself humbly, riding on a simple donkey. This meek and humble arrival would culminate in His triumphant victory over death one week later. Jesus came to Jerusalem knowing that He would empty himself, giving His own life for our salvation.
Holy Week is a time to be renewed in our faith. To join in the drama and mystery of the Passion and Resurrection of our Lord. Although we may not physically come together for Holy Thursday, Good Friday, or Easter Sunday, we can seek out virtual Masses, we can read Scripture, we can celebrate at home using the resources linked below; and most importantly, we can reflect on the ways in which God's great gift of His only Son has transformed our lives. Later this week we'll provide a link for a special way that the parishioners of St. John Fisher can virtually come together and celebrate the Easter Mass at home - led by a very familiar face and reassuring voice!
