Sunday's Joy Turns to Rage
Passion Sunday lets us begin triumphantly with Jesus as he is making his way toward Jerusalem. As he enters the city, palm branches cover his path as people joyfully welcome him. But as the events of the week unfold, we find the joy diminishes into anger and even rage. Jesus leaves his disciples with a beautiful gift in the Last Supper before he is betrayed by his friend and handed over to Roman officials. We are left in stunned silence at his crucifixion. It’s important to experience all the emotions of this week to truly understand the joy we’ll all experience on Easter Sunday.
