“Let us proclaim the Mystery of Faith…”
One of the popular acclamations in the previous translation of the Mass was a response to the words given above, “Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again!” Contained in those words is the very Mystery of our Faith. And ready or not, we plunge into the Mystery with Holy Week.
On Palm Sunday, we not only receive blessed palms, we hear once again, the Passion of our Lord. As the Palms come home with us, they not only bless our homes, they remind us of Jesus’ sacrifice each time we see them.
On Monday morning, the world returns to normal. Business takes place. Homes and vehicles are bought and sold. People are born and people die. Some will fall in love and others will finally realize the lack of love. It is life.
It is life without Jesus.
Unless you stop.
