Is today the day? – Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion (A)

Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion
Lectionary: 37 and 38

There is so much here, in this Passion narrative. More than I could ever hope to plumb the depths of, or even begin to explore. Today, however, there is one thing that struck me afresh.

Would the disciples have slept if they’d known that the time of Jesus’s death was not merely approaching, but had, in fact, arrived?

How would I behave differently if I were to know today is the day I meet him in death or upon his return?

Today was the day for them, and one “today” will be the day for me.

Am I prepared?
