I look forward to seeing you throughout the week!

May the Lord bless each of you!

The Road to Glory!

Palm Sunday

The Road To Glory! Glory! Glory! Where do you find the Road to Glory? What does it cost to travel it?

We begin a Journey today whose destination is GLORY, for Jesus, God’s Son, won for us that we might share in that same Glory!

The journey begins today with an exuberant, anticipation and joy. We re-enact it with our own Procession of Palms into the Church. Suddenly, before we know what has happened, there is talk of suffering and death! What happened? Did we take a wrong turn?

We have heard the story before and know the outcome. But what does it say to our life’s journey today, here and now? Jesus overcame sin and death by giving himself completely for us. By giving ourselves completely to God and one another, we too shall achieve GLORY!
