The final hours: Jesus secures our salvation.
Today is Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord, the start of Holy Week. Sometimes we shorten it to Palm Sunday in reference to the palms we receive that are reminiscent of Jesus' entrance into Jerusalem. It is also called Passion Sunday because the entire Passion of the Lord is read during Mass. Did you know that, in this sense, "passion" comes from the Latin word for suffering? So Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord is the beginning of Jesus' suffering on His journey to the cross to secure our salvation.
As Jesus approached Jerusalem, many people were there to greet Him and sing His praises. But the hosannas quickly faded into agony, betrayal, and death. Jesus knew this would happen. Yet it did not deter Him from doing the will of His Father. Jesus' ordeal was painful, humiliating, and filled with suffering. But His love for us was greater than all these things. He willingly gave up His earthly life for our sins. This is yet another definition of passion: the willingness to suffer for what you love.
The Christian community is tasked with following in Jesus' footsteps by loving one another. So the next time we have the opportunity to help someone, let's focus less on how inconvenient it might be and more on how little we are sacrificing compared to Jesus.
