Lent, Day 34


It's already Palm Sunday weekend.  Congregations all around the world will begin their masses by retelling the story of the adoring crowds.  We hear how they were laying down of cloaks and palm branches before Him.   Later they will contrast that with the reading of the Passion.  I don't think I have ever gotten through the reading without tears.   From "Hosanna!" to "Crucify Him!"

And so we begin Holy Week.
