Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
April 5, 2020 - Palm Sunday of the Lord's Passion
Gospel: MT 26:14—27:66
Take and eat, this is my body.
Today is the start of the Holy Week – Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion – a great testament of God’s love for us.
Our gospel is about the preparation of the Passover meal shared by Jesus and his disciples. As we enter this sacred time, Jesus is preparing us of what we are to receive: his body and blood. Let’s ask ourselves, “What does our heart contain right now?” and “Are we ready to take and receive Jesus in our hearts?”
Mother Mary, be our model of unconditional love so we also could be ready to offer ourselves most especially to those in need.
