Palm Sunday (YR B) 2018

The Passion and Death of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ according to Mark is the most concrete, the most blunt, and the most dark of all the passion accounts. We hear how the darkness tried to extinguish the Light, the true Light that had come into the world, Jesus Christ. If the story had ended there, it would be sad, an unadorned tragedy, but we know, through the eyes of faith, that the story did not end there but in the glory of the Resurrection. We know that the dark could not extinguish the true Light that had come into the world. We know that there would be no Easter without Jesus’ passion, no Easter without Good Friday.
