Entry into Jerusalem--Who are you?


By raising Lazarus from the dead before Your passion,
You did confirm the universal Resurrection, O Christ God!
Like the children with the palms of victory,
We cry out to You, O Vanquisher of death;
Hosanna in the Highest!
Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord!

Greetings in the Name of the Lord! Blessed Palm Sunday to you!

In his thoughtful 1985 homily for this day, Metropolitan Anthony Bloom challenges us to think about who WE are in that crowd cheering the Lord on into Jerusalem. Are we disciples, deny-ers, or worse?

Read the homily now.
