Bulletin Shorts for Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion

Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion – 05 April 2020 

Procession:  Matthew 21:1-11.

Mass:  Isaiah 50:4-7.  Psalm 22:8-9, 17-18, 19-20, 23-24.  Philippians 2:6-11.  Matthew 26:14–27:66.

Being Humble.  Jesus Christ shows us how to be humble today.  So humble, that he “emptied himself”. This brought on entry into Jerusalem, passion, death, burial, and risen life.

  • How will I, an empty and humble self, do some mercy work this Holy Week?
  • How will I be a sign of humility to the elect preparing for Baptism at week’s end?
  • Let me save the times and come to be Church for the celebrations of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter.
