John Kavanaugh, SJ
Wonder Woman, better than the Amazons, could take on armies of marauders. But not Jesus. I would have rewritten the script.
If today’s procession and passion are considered together, in the one Jesus appears as sublime and glorious, in the other as lowly and suffering. The procession makes us think of the honor reserved for a king, whereas the passion shows us the punishment due to a thief.
