04/14/19 Palm Sunday - Fr. Damian

Let us try to answer few questions today:

1) Does Jesus weep over my sinful soul as he wept over Jerusalem at the beginning of his Palm Sunday procession?

 2) God expects me to produce fruits of holiness, purity, justice, humility, obedience, charity, and forgiveness.  Do I?   Or do I continue to produce bitter fruits of impurity, injustice, pride, hatred, jealousy and selfishness?

3) Will Jesus have to cleanse my heart with his whip?  Jesus cannot tolerate the desecration of the temple of his Holy Spirit in me by my addiction to uncharitable, unjust and impure thoughts words and deeds; neither is Jesus pleased by my calculation of loss and gain in my relationship with God. 

4) Do I welcome Jesus into my heart?  Am I ready to surrender my life to him during this Holy Week and welcome him into all areas of my life as my Lord and Savior? The palms should remind us that Christ is our King and the true answer to our quest for happiness and meaning in life.

5) Am I like the humble donkey that carried Jesus?

Let us carry and radiate Jesus’ universal love, unconditional forgiveness and sacrificial service to our families, and communities.
