For those of us who are Christians, this is the day--THE day--that is both the evocation and commemoration of our faith. The sorrow of #HolyWeek is past and the joy of #Easter is here. #Alleluia alleluia.

On Easter we re-dedicate ourselves to Christ's selflessness and love.🌿
Jesus offers us a message of love that transcends death. On #Easter, as the gospel tells us, Mary Magdalene went to Christ's tomb & found he was not there. She is the one who announces the Resurrection. In her we see ourselves, opening our minds & hearts to Christ's teachings. 🌿
The #Resurrection that we celebrate on #Easter is our annual baptism and re-birth into our faith. It is the story of how much we are loved by Christ and how the one and only thing Christ asks of us in return is to love others as we are loved by him.

Can we do this?
We must.🌿

On #PalmSunday, those of us who are Christians are reminded that Jesus' entire journey has been one of humility and service. He has healed the sick, fed the hungry, washed the feet of his disciples, given succor to those in need. We must follow his lead and do the same.🌿
As we enter into the holiest week on the Christian calendar, the final days of #Lent, what is our own journey toward #HolyThursday, #GoodFriday and finally, #Easter?
How do we walk with Christ through these days? How do we re-dedicate ourselves to the gospel and to our faith?🌿
The current political climate is fraught, as was that of Jesus'. But he stood against the unjust oppressor and with oppressed people. As Jesus prayed the night before he was taken by Pilate, he prayed for the cup to pass him by. He prayed for strength. He prayed for purpose. 🌿

Do you know My King, Jesus?
Allow me to introduce Him to you.

He's the King of the Jews.
He's the King of Israel.
He's the King of Righteousness.
He's the King of the Ages.
He's the King of Heaven.
He's the King of Glory.
He's the King of Kings, and He's the Lord of Lords.
That's my King. David said, "The Heavens declare the glory of God &
the firmament shows His handiwork." My King is sovereign. No means of measure can define His limitless love. No far seeing telescope can bring into visibility the coastline of His shoreless supply.

This is #HolyWeek -- the week in the Christian year that marks the final days of Jesus' life.

It is not "holy" because it is super-spiritual, set apart, or sacred. It is holy because it shows how God is present in the world. 1/
The week is deeply mundane, political. 2/
It began w/ a protest rally. What we call "Palm Sunday" was a protest rally AGAINST imperial Rome. Those complicit w/Rome gathered on one side of the city to hail Pilate's entry into Jerusalem; on the other, the resisters welcomed Jesus & treated him as King. 3/
