Palm branches were thrown before him as a sign of welcome. People were singing and children were dancing and everyone was delighted that finally he had arrived. A great celebrity had come to say hello. Sadly, within hours the tide of warm feelings was getting very cold. Soon people did not like what he was saying – he made them think and they discovered that their welcome had not been heartfelt – they wanted a magician and they met a man willing to suffer for his message. He challenged them to think deeply about their beliefs and they shunned him and wanted to get rid of him. In a few days the palm was replaced with the thick branches of a stout tree, strong enough to hold the weight of a body. In the hours of this very special week ahead may God help us to understand and value, the love which helped him endure the whipping, the humiliation, meeting his mother’s tear-filled eyes, the nails digging into his flesh and his words – it is accomplished!
