Homily 350 – Holy Week in Half an Hour – Palm Sunday

April 9th, 2017, by Fr. Shawn P. Tunink

Palm SundayToday’s liturgy seems to move so quickly. We move from our joyful entrance with shouts of Hosanna to Jesus been crucified and dead in the tomb all in just about half an hour. It seem much too fast to take in such important events. And indeed it is too fast. The events described in today’s liturgy really took place over the course of the entire upcoming week. We are meant to see today as a kind of “preview” for the deeper unpacking we will experience in the course of this week. Today’s homily gives an overview of what to expect from the liturgies of Holy Week. Most especially, we must be ready to celebrate the holiest three days of the year. These three days are so holy that we simply call them “The Three Days..” in Latin, Triduum.
