PALM SUNDAY

Archbishop and Presiding Prelate

A9The entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem is the symbol of his entry into your soul by communion. “Say to the Daughter of Zion, here is your King coming to you.”

FIRST POINT, He who is coming to you, hidden under the sacramental species is the same Jesus Christ who showed himself this day to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, with every mark of triumph; it is the same Jesus Christ, God and Man who is seated at the right-hand of his eternal father; it is the Lord of Heaven and earth; it is he who made me by his Almighty power, who redeemed me by his blood, who has preserved for me, the life I received from him, and who will one day judge all my thoughts, words and deeds.…

SECOND POINT To whom is Jesus Christ coming? To you. He comes to a vile wretch, full of weakness, of darkness, of misery, of all sorts of imperfections, of sins both past and present. He comes to the inconstant daughter of Zion.…who today heaps praises upon him, and who will, tomorrow, insult him. He comes to a light and volatile soul, who, today protests to be ever faithful to him, and who will tomorrow forsake him.…

The Centurion did not think himself worthy to receive Jesus Christ into his house. St. Peter thought himself unworthy to appear in his presence, “Retire from me, O Lord, for I am a sinner.” St. John the Baptist considered himself unworthy to loose the strings of his shoes.…With what astonishment ought I not then to be seized, when the God of Glory, the God of Majesty, the Sovereign Lord, before whom all the kings of the earth are less than insects, comes to me, comes into my heart, and resides there.…Great God! purify my soul.…

THIRD POINT. Why does Jesus Christ come to me? Is it his own interest that makes him take this step? No: it is solely mine he has in view. He only comes to cure my infirmities, to strengthen me against the evils that threaten me, to grant all my needs, to preserve me in his grace and friendship; to unite me to him, to transform me into himself, to make me a partaker of his Divinity, to make me, as it were, like unto himself.…
