Readings for Palm Sunday
Isaiah 50:4-9, Philippians 2:5-115: 1-11 & Matthew 27:11-54
Monday 3rd April
It is still a long way to Good Friday but one of the prayers for next Sunday is significant.
Prayer: True and humble king, hailed by the crowd as Messiah: grant us the faith to know you and love you, that we may be found beside you on the way of the cross, which is the path of glory.
Jesus turns his face to his future and it was not the prettiest prospect. Yet the fulfilment of his life was the cross.
Question: Wonder at the way in which Jesus walked towards his end. Would our promise be to stay with him?

My Greek angel would come into St. Peter’s. She talked of God’s spirit always being with her.
She would press a bar if soap or a carton of cooked mince into my hand. Usually there would be opportunity to pass such gift on before the day was over.
Her visits have ceased, she moved out of town and into care.
The last time I saw her she promised to pray for me.
