WEEK 19 P alm S unday , S ixth S unday in L ent April 2 - 8, 2023


Holy Week recalls the events of our Lord’s suffering and death. We recall his triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, his giving of the commandments on Maundy Thursday, his crucifixion and burial on Good Friday, and the solemn vigil of Saturday night before Easter Sunday.

THIS WEEK’S THEME The Triumphal Entry, Matthew 21.1-11

God promised a king to rule on David’s throne as Lord and Christ forever. The prophet Zechariah said, “Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold, your king is coming to you, humble, and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden” (Zech. 9.9). Jesus fulfills the prophecy that the king is coming to us, humble, on a donkey. The crowd waved palms and shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!” Indeed, the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth of Galilee, is the Christ, the Lord, the Savior of the world.

We praise you, O God, for your redemption of the world through Jesus Christ. Today he entered the holy city of Jerusalem in triumph and was proclaimed Messiah and king by those who spread garments and branches along his way. Let these branches be signs of his victory, and grant that we who carry themmay follow him in the way of the cross,
