In a parallel scene to the triumphant entry into Jerusalem, today Jesus travels through Jerusalem accompanied by crowds. Instead of praising Him with laud and honor, they shout at Him, curse Him, and urge His captors to crucify Him. Pope Francis writes “Love is a gift that means giving our lives.” Jesus leads us in this by offering his life for all.
How do we receive this gift from Christ? How can we offer the gift of our lives for others?
