Jesus Remember Me
Our Lenten journey of conversion has brought us to the holiest week of the Church year. With palm branches in hand we enter the holy city of Jerusalem, proclaiming, "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord." From this grand entrance into the city, we follow the Lord Jesus as he shares his last meal with his disciples, institutes the Eucharist, is arrested, betrayed, and killed. Each year this celebration of Palm Sunday of the Lord's Passion plunges us into the saving mystery of Christ's death and resurrection. The Lord's forgiveness of the repentant thief reminds us that reconciliation awaits those who put their faith in Christ. Let the repentant thief's words become our own this day: "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom" (Luke 23:42).  (c) Copyright, J. S. Paluch Co.

HOLY WEEK AND THE PASCHAL TRIDUUM
Sunday, March 28 - Sunday, April 4, 2010
"The days of Jesus' life-giving death and glorious resurrection are approaching, the hour he triumphed over Satan's pride, the time we celebrate the great event of our redemption" (Preface of the Lord's Passion II, Sacramentary). Thus the Church begins the one week of the year that we formally designate as "Holy." Simple rituals can link the domestic church to parish church and Church universal. Enthrone Sunday's palms where you pray, behind the family crucifix, even as part of front door decorations: "Christ reigns here," they proclaim; "all are welcome!" During the first three days of Holy Week, ready Easter clothes, prepare festal foods, clean the house, beautify the yard. Late Holy Thursday afternoon, share Lent's final meal before the Lord's Supper Mass. Pitcher, bowl, and towel make a fitting centerpiece; perhaps conclude the meal by washing each other's feet. On Good Friday, observe the paschal fast from food--from TV and computer, too! Then come to Holy Saturday's Vigil with mind clear, stomach empty, and heart full of  "holy anticipation" that bursts into living flame when the new fire is kindled.
