Cycle A Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion

Today we start with the Gospel reading before we even begin the procession.  It reminds us of how the ordinary people responded to Jesus, some of whom would later condemn him.  How fickle are we in our faith journey?  Are we quick to call ourselves Christian and slow to respond to the requirements of a Christian life?   The prophet says, “he opens my ear that I may hear; and I have not rebelled.”  How often do we rebel when things are not comfortable or easy or what we want?  When the going gets difficult do we persevere and move forward or reconsider our options for a simpler road to travel?  Do we think we can do such because we feel God has abandoned us?  Yet we know we are more likely to abandon God than he us.
Jesus emptied himself to sacrifice everything for you and me.  What are we willing to sacrifice for him?
