PASSION
The word “passion” connotes deep, focused engagement. It also relates to passivity, interestingly. The
deeply passionate person in the Gospel narrative from
Luke is Jesus. He appears passive, but he is not. He is
wholly self-possessed and wholly present for the one
day that begins on Thursday evening at his last meal
with his apostles and ends with his burial before sunset
the next day. Then follows the long Sabbath silence.
The narrative of the Passion is read whole and without pause on the Palm Sunday of the Passion. This
story, found in each of the Gospels, is unchanging. We
are the ones who change. Each year, we bring ourselves
with another year’s history to hear and heed the story
we so badly need. Life has its way with us, and we look
again to the Passion narratives to learn to follow. Copyright ©

Pope Francis' Prayer for the Extraordinary
Jubilee Year of Mercy
Lord Jesus Christ, you have taught us to be
merciful like the heavenly Father, and have told
us that whoever sees you sees Him.
Show us your face and we will be saved.
Your loving gaze freed Zacchaeus and Matthew
from being enslaved by money; the adulteress
and Magdalene from seeking happiness only in
created things; made Peter weep after his betrayal,
and assured Paradise to the repentant thief.
Let us hear, as if addressed to each one of us,
the words that you spoke to the Samaritan woman:
"If you knew the gift of God!"
You are the visible face of the invisible Father,
of the God who manifests his power above all by
forgiveness and mercy: let the Church be your
visible face in the world, its Lord risen and
glorified.
You willed that your ministers would also be
clothed in weakness in order that they may feel
compassion for those in ignorance and error: let
everyone who approaches them feel sought after,
loved, and forgiven by God.
Send your Spirit and consecrate every one
of us with its anointing, so that the Jubilee of
Mercy may be a year of grace from the Lord,
and your Church, with renewed enthusiasm, may
bring good news to the poor, proclaim liberty to
captives and the oppressed, and restore sight to
the blind.
We ask this through the intercession of Mary,
Mother of Mercy, you who live and reign with
the Father and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.
Amen.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION What day is today? Ask most folks strolling home from church
today and they will reply “Palm Sunday.” Not too long ago, today was known as the “Second Sunday of the
Passion,” and in 1970 it was renamed “Passion Sunday.” This made some sense, since the procession recalling
Christ’s entry into Jerusalem is usually only celebrated once in a parish on this day, but the Passion is proclaimed solemnly at every liturgy. In its most recent incarnation, the name for this day includes both aspects of
the celebration: “Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord.” In the United States today, most worshipers are provided with palm branches, although in northern Europe pussy willows are favored, and in Italy olive branches
are the norm.
When our calendar was reformed, the entire structure of the week to come was revised even as the traditional name, “Holy Week,” was retained. The major benefit of the restructuring of our calendar is to help us see
that the Triduum, the great three days beginning at sunset this Thursday and extending until sunset on Easter
Sunday, is at the heart of the Christian life.
Today, as you ponder the Lord’s Passion, you may consider your response to so great a gift. Centuries ago,
good Christians vowed to go on pilgrimage to Jerusalem. Today, at least once in your lifetime, promise to participate faithfully in the liturgies. Now begins the Church’s annual baptismal retreat: don’t be left out! —Rev.
