SCRIPTURE – Today’s video is based on Mark 11: 1-11. Here is an excerpt. “Many people spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut from the fields. Those preceding him as well as those following kept crying out: ‘Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the kingdom of our father David that is to come! Hosanna in the highest!’ “
REFLECT – Jesus entered into Jerusalem amid shouts of joy from the crowd. Do our hearts cry out with joy when we see Jesus approaching us at Mass, in the Eucharist, the Sacraments, or in each other? Do we praise heaven and thank God for giving us so great a Savior? Would we be one of the crowd welcoming Jesus into our city, or would we duck our heads and pass Him by silently?
SHARE – Joy is a fruit of the Holy Spirit. Ask the Lord to fill your heart with His joy, the joy of the people in Jerusalem. Find a way to share and spread that joy to someone today.
PRAY – Lord Jesus, please enter my heart. You are the King of my life, and I joyfully welcome You! Fill me with Your joy today. Amen.
