Lenten Reflection Day 40: Mark 11:8

Listen to the audio version here: https://anchor.fm/simplediakonia/episodes/Lenten-Reflection-Day-40-Mark-118-etmf4l

“Many people spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut from the fields.” (Mark 11:8)

Reflection

Did you hear? The Messiah has entered Jerusalem.

Come, let us honor him. Bring your palm leaves.

Let us shout: “Jesus Christ is Lord!”

Did you hear? A woman poured perfumed oil on Jesus’ head.

Together with his disciples, Jesus broke bread.

What can we do to prepare him for his death?

Did you hear? One of his disciples betrayed Jesus; another one denied him.

He rests crucified now. He has died so that we may live.

Come, let us join Mary and John at the foot of the cross.

Today’s Intention

Thank you, Lord, for humbling yourself; for sharing our humanity so that we may share your divinity. Following your Father’s will, may the Holy Spirit fills us with a sense of mystery, worship, and prayer this Holy Week.

Peace and Goodness
