Reflections
for Sunday, April 1, 2012

I have set my face like flint, knowing that I shall not be put to shame--These words from the Prophet Isaiah speak very strongly of the experience of this Palm Sunday of the Lord's Passion. This Sunday we begin Holy Week and in a very special way, we try to walk with our Lord and understand His sufferings so that we can understand His love for us.

We should be able to understand why Jesus must set his face like flint. He has already seen in His heart the suffering that will be His this week. He knows that He wants to accept that suffering for our salvation. He knows that people will oppose Him - not only His enemies but also His friends. He chooses to suffer for us and to accept all suffering so that we may live.

Lots of us have opportunities to suffer and to offer our lives for others. Quite often we refuse to accept that suffering. Instead, we will try every way to get out of the suffering. Jesus understands us. He also prayed to the Father to avoid suffering, but in the end He says to the Father: Your will be done.

Let us walk with Jesus on this Palm Sunday. The love that we can give to Him is to say with Him as our prayer: Your will be done.

First Reading: Isaiah 50.4-7
