Newsletter – Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

What is humility?
Humility is just about the exact opposite of everything you see in the world nowadays! To discover the essentials of humility, you have to experiment with self-emptying. Humility recognises that everything comes from God and belongs to God. Therefore, to God alone go all praise, honour, and glory. When you begin with God and not with yourself, your perspective on reality dramatically shifts. God’s will comes first. “Not my will, but yours be done,” as Jesus prays in the Garden of Gethsemane.
When you choose the perspective of a humble heart, you become aware that your proper orientation as a creature should be one of obedience—that is, attentive listening—to God’s call. The attitude of obedience led to the world’s salvation, as Saint Paul tells us: “[Jesus] humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross.” Paul explains that humility means putting others ahead of yourself, and thinking of their needs rather than yours. That is so countercultural jaws will drop whenever you attempt it.

REFLECTION OF THE WEEK

FRIDAY OF THE LORD’S PASSION (GOOD FRIDAY) (MARCH 29)
The path of redemption
It is easy to conclude that one of human beings’ best actions is inflicting suffering on one another. In ways big and small, people look to their interests at the expense of others. Yet Christ, in obedient love, gathers up all suffering in his Passion and death and offers us redemption through his ultimate sacrifice and Resurrection.
Readings: Isaiah 52:13–53:12; Hebrews 4:14-16, 5:7-9; John 18:1-19:42 (https://bible.usccb.org/bible/readings/032924.cfm) . “Christ became obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.”

FAITH IN ACTION
You can participate in Christ’s redeeming sacrifice by abandoning yourself to God.
