The Work of our Redemption

   At last we have arrived at Jerusalem for this week, rightly called “Holy Week”, the most important of the year. On this Sun- day we commemorate Our Lord’s triumphal entry into the holy city, acclaimed by the crowds waving palm branches and crying “Hosanna!” This triumph is so soon to be followed by His sufferings. Nevertheless, His sufferings are not a reverse of His triumphal entry, but are its fulfillment. Our Lord came not to establish an earthly kingdom, like an Emperor or a military leader, but rather He came to found a kingdom of truth and love. It is this which shines out on the cross. Our Lord is victorious in His acceptance of death which He could have avoided had He wished.  ~ Fr. Paul Dobson
