The end of Lent is in our sights. Today we celebrate Palm Sunday, recalling how Christ entered Jerusalem with the crowd cheering him into town. At Mass, we also read one version of the Passion which sets our minds upon what is to come during Holy Week. As we mark the days, we anticipate the arrival of Easter and the celebration of how Christ’s ultimate sacrifice brought us life.
We went to Mass last night as today I will be leading a short Seder meal for the youth group and could not handle the really long day as Palm Sunday Mass is a little longer than usual. The opening song we sang (without a congregational procession) was Hosanna to the Son of David by Dan Schutte. Here is a recording of it with the lyrics shown:
I am not sure if I will be at any of the services for Holy Thursday or Good Friday this year. I do plan to attend Mass on Tuesday morning and will be dedicating some of my evening time to extra prayer and time to just listen.
How is your Lenten experience going so far?
Have you found a particular devotion or practice to be helpful in bringing your mind to Christ and growing in relationship with Him this Lent?
I hope that my readers will join us on the journey through Lent as we seek to grow closer to Christ. Christian bloggers are welcome to join us in the weekly link up with posts that they are writing to showcase activities or reflections taken during this Lenten journey.
