SUNDAY REFLECTIONS

A Pilgrimage To God

Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord ( 5th April 2020 )

[ Isaiah 50:4-7 , Ps 21:8-9.17-20.23-24 , Philippians 2:6-11, Matthew 26:14-27:66 ]

The liturgy of Palm Sunday can be described as an ascent and a descent. The aspect of ascent is seen in our procession which reflects something very profound. We are setting off on a pilgrimage with our palms along the high road that leads to God, to eternity. Our palms reflect and unite the royal splendor of Christ with the proclamation of His Passion consecutively. They reflect our witness in faith to this messianic King and His Paschal victory over sin and death. Yet we can also fall and descend into falsehood and evil because of the insinuations of others who like the religious leaders of Jesus’ time have never set off on the high road to God and have never allowed Jesus to be the King of their lives because of their constant questioning of his actions, intentions and motives. We are all on a procession, a pilgrimage to God with Jesus in this life of ascent and descent. Let us then make this journey.

圣枝主日经文巧妙地包含融合两个看似矛盾的主题。耶稣在耶路撒冷人民的爱戴簇拥下进城,可说是天父子民团结一致天国荣耀尽显的某种预映形式,但亦很直白预言出人性的劣根背道义弃,为己利瞬间冷酷置人子于不顾,从未真正以天父旨意为人生指标。在人生的修行旅途中,让我们勿忘继续心系这两启教训,确保自己不与天父脱节脱队。
