Palm Sunday

I actually started writing this yesterday but got sidetracked. So, it's a day later and here I am again. Take two.

Today is Palm Sunday. Already one week before Easter, or Pascha to my friends who worship in the Orthodox and Eastern Rite Catholic communities. The day Jesus enters Jerusalem in triumph. He knew that 6 days later He'd be hanging from a cross, but He also knew that it was what His Father wanted. His Divine nature knew what needed to be done for the rest of us. His human nature, well, who knows - was He like us? Personally, I suspect He was, probably more than we realize.

"Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for of such is the Kingdom of God (Luke 18:16)." How true that is.
