Most of the crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9And the crowds that went before him and that followed him were shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!” 10And when he entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred up, saying, “Who is this?”
Nearly everyone in Jerusalem that day had an idea of what the Messiah, when he came, would do for them. We are not much different. We peddle our merchandise in the temple, even if that is the temple of our own bodies. We treat the sacred as it is the common. Ye through this beautiful, heart-wrenching narrative we see that Christ wants to inhabit every temple and will flip over every table until his is given the the honor due his glory. Palm Sunday is one of the most celebratory Sunday's in the Christian calendar but that is only for those with eyes and ears to see that Christ has come to throw out any and everyone who is hindering the poor to get back to God. Join us and come poor in spirit if you have to, but come. You are welcome at the table Christ has prepared for you!
