Palm Sunday Homily »
Published Tuesday, Mar. 31, 2015

Our carrying the palms is a profession that we do not think Jesus in his death is proved to be an imposter. Because we have faith, we carry the palms and by them profess that we recognize in the self-offering of Jesus the very essence of who he is as our king. As it says in an ancient Christian hymn, our king Jesus has reigned from the cross. We proclaim this truth every time we come to the Eucharist: “We proclaim your death lord until you come in glory… When we eat this bread and drink this cup, we proclaim your death until you come again… Save us, savior of the world, for by your cross and resurrection, you have set us free.”
