The next day, the news that Jesus was on the way to Jerusalem swept through the city. A huge crowd of Passover visitors took palm branches and went down the road to meet Him. They shouted, ‘Praise God! Bless the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Hail to the King of Israel!’ Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, fulfilling the prophecy that said: ‘Don’t be afraid, people of Israel. Look, your King is coming, sitting on a donkey’s colt.’ …Then the Pharisees said to each other, ‘We’ve lost. Look, the whole world has gone after him!’ - Luke 19:12- 15, 19 (CEV)
On Sundays, we pause to anticipate the coming of Easter Sunday and the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
