Jesus enters the city Jerusalem as a king would. He rides on a colt—an animal used for the entrance of royalty into a city.
The Cross as Revealing the Inner Life of God
The cross, then, is the ultimate icon, the real depiction of the Holy. It shows us God’s heart, the inner life of the Trinity.

Do No Harm

Today’s liturgy teaches us “to welcome our suffering,” to bear witness to God by following Christ’s example of suffering.
Jesus endured the sense of being abandoned by the one he loved most, his Abba. He chose to experience all of humanity’s worst suffering. What does this tell us?
