Lent 2018

Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord

PEOPLE CARRY LARGE PALM FRONDS DURING 2011 PALM SUNDAY MASS AT VATICAN cns paul haringRead

Today marks the beginning of Holy Week. Lent will end at sunset on Holy Thursday and the three days of the Paschal Triduum will begin.

Reflect

Take extra time with the Scriptures today with the art of lectio divina.

 

Pray

Almighty ever-living God,

who as an example of humility for the human race to follow

caused our Savior to take flesh and submit to the Cross,

graciously grant that we may heed his lesson of patient suffering

and so merit a share in his Resurrection.

Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, for every and ever.

(Collect, Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord, Roman Missal, Third Edition)

Act

As we remember Christ's suffering and Death in today's gospel reading, reflect on the suffering of many communities around the United States today. Listen to this 2-minute podcast about the Option for the Poor.
