Originally delivered on March 27, 1988
Reading: Mark 11:1-10
In today’s Gospel, we hear that first the crowds welcomed Jesus, throwing palms in front of him, only to later call for His crucifixion. We are challenged to reflect on how we welcome Jesus in our lives. How close do we let our Lord? Do we let our love for and faith in Jesus influence our daily lives? Father Healy reflects on his and the parish’s own decisions regarding the homelessness. We are each invited, even challenged, to explore if we really welcome Jesus in our lives.
