In this most holy season, I would like to wish you peace, comfort, hope, and blessings through the month of April as we bear witness to Jesus’ passion, death, and resurrection.
On Palm Sunday, we witness Jesus entering the city of Jerusalem, all while knowing the path that lay ahead of him. He was the suffering servant, who suffered for us so that we might be forgiven for our sins. He appears to understand what is happening to him—that he must suffer and die—whereas his followers, those who are always with him, do not understand. In essence, he is isolated from the very people he is closest to. Even so, Jesus is obedient to God, despite the sorrow and misunderstanding he feels.
