After the joyful procession of palms, as we express it in the Liturgy, the scene suddenly changes, and we have arrived at the Passion. This shift is a jolt, and it is meant to be. Jesus has come to the place where His redeeming Love will find its fullest expression on the Cross.

As we approach this week, let us go with Our Lord, in all the places where He will be – Bethany, the Temple, the Cenacle, Gethsemane, the Praetorium, Calvary, the tomb. Let us seek His Face in all these places, and so draw close to Him who has poured His life out for us in sacrifice.

May God bless you specially this Holy Week, as you journey with Him.
