Sixth Week of Lent (Holy Week): Trust and Faith

icon"Six days before the Passover, when the Lord came into the city of Jerusalem, the children ran to meet him; in their hands they carried palm branches and with a loud voice cried out: Hosanna in the highest!" (Jn 12:1.12-13)

We have reached Holy Week! This week was made 'holy' by its celebration of Jesus' gift of Himself to us.

In "normal," we will be in the Church waiving palm branches and singing Hosanna jubilantly to welcome Jesus, our Savior. Today, we are in a"new normal." We participate in the Mass through our TV or Computer - perhaps, holding a palm branch, most likely not.

The barrenness of this year Lent cuts deep into our hearts. Our confidence may have been shaken by the suffering we experienced, or seeing what happens globally. Jesus seems a distance away amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Yet, Holy Week invites us to walk closer with Jesus and trust in Him even more!

We are called to remember and to have faith in His love for us. Christ Jesus can calm the storm in our lives and hold our hands when we falter. In these challenging times, let us walk with Jesus and tell Him, "I trust you, Jesus, come what may, as I know I am safe in Your hand."

Suggested Scripture readings
Isaiah 50:4-7
